With several past summer exhibits featuring fairy houses, Highfield Hall & Gardens now turns its attention to winter in seeking individuals to submit entries for their upcoming Winter Wonderland Village.

The current climate of social distancing and pandemic concerns have affected everyone this year. By offering an outdoor exhibition, Highfield served both visitors and locals looking to engage in healthy and creative activities. The Winter Wonderland Village will continue to offer an outdoor exhibit, this time with a holiday theme.

The exhibit will feature Patrick Dougherty’s Stickwork sculpture “A Passing Fancy” located on the front lawn of the hall as the backdrop to the village. In the fairy house tradition, the miniature village will be created using natural elements and will feature representations of woodland creatures, gnomes and tiny worlds.

The hall is looking for creative individuals to present their representations of a winter wonderland. Highfield’s new exhibit will be of particular interest to those with a background in art, floral, horticultural, landscape and/or architectural design.

Winter Wonderland Village will open to the public on November 27 and will remain open until December 13. For more information, contact Joanne Ingersoll, director of programs and exhibitions, at jingersoll@highfieldhall.org or 508-495-1878, extension 316.
