    Liz Mumford’s nostalgic paintings of New England scenes and seaside life reflect a contemporary take on the simple pleasures and traditions of our American heritage. This exhibit highlights both Mumford’s signature style of painted tableaux with lettered borders drawn from such sources of New England wisdom as Benjamin Franklin’s Poor Richards Almanac, bible verses, and sea shanties and presents a new direction in her creative work, that of large-scale circular watercolors.

    Elizabeth Mumford's artwork will be displayed at the Cahoon Museum of American Art until June 25th 2017.

    "Several encounters with visual phenomena in my early life solidified my later path to becoming an artist. One encounter happened when I was five and visited the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. I now reflect back on that visit as one of the portals into an ability to imagine an event without the limitations of boundaries and time." - Ric Haynes. Read more.

    Exhibition will be at Woodruff's Art Center until June 25th.
    Artist talk on Sunday, June 11th at 4 PM.

    Svetlana and the Delancey Five
    July 16, 4:00 pm

    Mid-July is hot on Cape Cod but Highfield Hall will be even hotter as Svetlana brings her Delancey Five from NYC to Highfield Hall. Whether singing at the Roxie Hotel and other premier New York City jazz club, down to the secret underground speakeasies, Svetlana and her Delancey Five play hard swing 1920s-40s jazz standards as well as charismatic originals. It’s hard to imagine such incredible musical energy coming from one tent on the lawn of an historic Cape Cod mansion and its gardens. So bring along your dance shoes because the tent will be packed but not all of the lawn surrounding it!

    Hilary Gardner, Vocalist and Ehud Asherie, Pianist
    August 13, 4:00 pm

    Only one thing need be said about the singing of Hilary Gardner and it has already been written by Stephen Holden of the New York Times “…an uninhibited answer to the young Doris Day.” Her repertoire takes you back to the old standards of the Golden Age of Broadway and forward to the new and edgy sounds of American music in the 21st century. But there is a freshness to her delivery that makes people breathe just a bit harder. She brings with her Israeli pianist Ehud Asherie, who will make magic on our Mason & Hamlin grand piano. New York critics like him too, calling him “a master of swing and stride,” The New Yorker. The late afternoon of August 13 will be a classy time in our mansion. Why would you want to be anywhere else?
