Art Because… is organizing a juried art show for next April at Highfield Hall & Gardens in Falmouth. The show is titled ”60/60: over 60 pieces of art by women over the age of 60.”

Art Because… is a collaborative of three women, all artists, who live on the Upper Cape. All three been making art since they were young.

With the goal of supporting women artists and self-expression, entry to this show is limited to women age 60 and older. The collaborative is seeking current pieces by this demographic. Each artist is asked to submit one or two pieces. Each needs to be accompanied by a $15 entry fee.

The deadline to submit is December 31. To enter the show go to and follow instructions in the “Upcoming Shows” link. Acceptance notices will be sent out in February. One thing to note: drop-off of pieces will only be this coming March.

Any further questions can be sent to
