Cawley’s exhibit, entitled “Thinking Caps & Other Accessories” will be featured as part of Gould Academy’s annual Alumni Weekend (Sept. 26 – 28) and is scheduled to open on Friday, Sept. 26 from 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Cawley’s work combines letterpress printing, embroidery, and the re-use of discarded materials like library cards and old book pages. She received Good Idea Grants from the Maine Arts Commission in 2004 and 2010, and was the recipient of a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant for 2005-2006. Her art is in many public collections, including the Boston Public Library, Bowdoin College Library, Portland Museum of Art, RISD Library, the Library of Congress, and has been exhibited throughout the US and in England and Greece.

On Saturday, Gould will hold a public fireworks display at 7:15 p.m., with best viewing from the school’s athletic fields.
