Notes from Heather -

 

 

Chatham

 

Autumn in Chatham-

Such beautiful leaves on the ginkgo tree outside the gallery!

 

 

 

 

Windowboxes 

 

I love putting little pumpkins all along my windowboxes. 

The festive fall season is a great time to check out Chatham's Main Street.  I'm open daily at the gallery from 11am - 5pm.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The Old Cape Teapot

My mom's NEW book The Old Cape Teapot is NOW AVAILABLE!

 

Nancy Caldwell returns in the historical fiction, The Old Cape Teapot, to uncover the trails of two survivors from the wreck of the 1717 pirate ship Whydah.  Armed with an old map and the knowledge that in pirate culture the looted riches were equally shared, she takes us from the tropical island of Antigua to Cape Cod searching for more treasure.  Using alternating chapters between centuries, two stories link together to solve another mystery filled with danger and conspiracy.

 

The new book is available on our website and at the galleries, as well as numerous bookstores and specialty shops all over the Cape!  Also available as an e-book on Amazon and Barnes & Noble and iTunes.

 

The cover is designed by my dad, and features an  original acrylic on linen from his Square Foot Series.  The series of original acrylic on 12" x 12" wood panels depicts the perspective of the viewer looking down as they would explore the Cape's beaches and paths.  One Square Foot of Marconi includes a pottery shard similar to the piece my mom (and the contemporary character Nancy Caldwell) found on one of her beach walks.  Marconi Beach is where the sunken pirate ship the Whydah was found in the late 1980s.

 Crosby Mansion

Also exciting news:

My sister Annie and new brother-in-law Eric were married at the Crosby Mansion on October 18, 2014!

It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple!  

Here are some pictures from the wedding at Crosby Mansion and reception at my parents' home in Brewster!

The leaves were a magnificent, golden yellow and they were falling ever-so-softly throughout the ceremony on the Mansion's front porch pictured here.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kiss! 

 

 

 

 

 

Annie and Eric!

Centerpieces 

 

 

 

 

All of the centerpieces were unique bouquets of baby's breath, hydrangeas and dahlias in vintage teapots!  Each table had a different arrangement!

 

 

 

 

 

Bouquet 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Annie made her own bouquet and used special pins from my grandmother.

There were three tents set up behind the barn on my parents' property for the reception.

We were lucky to have had so many helpers!  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lights 

 

Little white lights were wrapped around all of the trees and inside the tents.  Lovely arrangements of baby's breath and dahlias were displayed at every corner.  It was an enchanting scene...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And at night, mingling along with the stars, the lights glowed and twinkled.

Cape Cod Poster 

 

 

This black and white poster is reproduced from an original acrylic on linen.  The classic study of a baseball, usually an old, well-used one, has become a favorite subject for my dad.   The posters are printed on an antiqued gray, heavy paper and pencil signed.

Display 

Since I opened the gallery in 1998 my concentration has been on the business side, the presentation, the gallerist part - which is my true passion.

This year I experimented with some printmaking of my own - with a focus on winter trees and their bare branches.  It was fun to work with my dad in the studio, and to learn more about the printmaking process.  I've always loved the drypoint method, but had never tried it myself.  A few of these drypoint engravings are on display in Chatham. 

Also shown here is a small pastel painting of lovely birch trees by my sister Anna.
