Reception for Artist Anne-Catherine Higham at First Parish, November 5

Please join Weston artist Anne-Catherine Higham for a reception celebrating her show, Reflections on Serenity – Let it Be, Let it Go, Let it In, on Sunday, November 5 from 3-5 pm at the Mary Jo Rines Gallery, First Parish Church in Weston, 349 Boston Post Road.

Reflections on Serenity features abstract paintings that draw upon the power of color to enhance our connection to the present moment, encouraging us to pause, release, and embrace what is.

About the exhibit: Reflections on Serenity — ’Let it Be, Let it Go, Let it In’

Serenity is a necessary state of mind for a deep experience of life. As individuals embark on the journey of life, a foundation of serenity allows us to build firmly on pillars of purpose, fulfillment, understanding, connection, and love. Without serenity, these pillars turn into props.

How may we, as individuals, cultivate serenity? To illuminate our way, we propose a reflection in three circular chapters:

Let it Be — Pause
Let it Go — Release
Let it In — Embrace

This exhibit draws on the wisdom of thinkers whose contemplations explore the human experience.

Here is, then, an invitation to embark on an experience with serenity. You are encouraged to suspend time and let the art be a window into the essence of being. May you bring colors of serenity onto the canvas of your life.

Before settling in Weston eight years ago, Higham lived in Asia, Europe, and Canada, and her bold, colorful paintings synthesize her experience with a broad range of cultures, perspectives, and wisdom traditions. Learn more about the artist and her work at

The Mary Jo Rines Gallery has been host to dozens of artists since its establishment in 2001, and its mission is to add another dimension to the spiritual fabric of our lives “by exhibiting the work of visual artists who seek to contribute to a deeper understanding of the human condition”.

Please note, a portion of proceeds from sales of Anne-Catherine’s work will be donated by the artist to the Pan-Mass Challenge fund for cancer research.
