Hawkfield Gallery Review and Sally Caverly the Heart of Hawkfield Gallery
Sally Caverly is the heart, soul and spirit of the Hawkfield Gallery, to put it simply or matter-off-factly. The gallery would not have existed without Sally Caverly, owner and curator of the gallery.As an art lover brought up by parents who were artists themselves, Sally had grown to appreciate the value of preserving and enhancing valuable products of inspired human imagination.
As a growing kid, she learned to appreciate the beauty of nature, of wildlife and of the breathtaking landscapes of New Hampshire's Lakes Region, thus, developing her keen taste for and understanding of human art as well. Art collecting and her great interest in research came about as natural products of interacting with family members, from her formal education and from her versatile work involvement.
Sally obtained a degree in B.A.in Marketing from Simmons College as well as another diploma from Phillips Academy in Andover.She also has a Master’s Degree in Education. She worked as Market Research Department Head at Houghton Mifflin Company and ran online retail store. She now serves as a Director at the North and South Rivers Watershed Association, aside from pursuing her passion for art through managing Hawkfield Gallery and mentoring children with special needs.
Sally started quite early in the art gallery business during her teens when she was tasked at times to serve as auctioneer for her parents’ collection of American impressionist paintings and sculptures. We can say that she was not only literally born into the art scene but trained so early on to take up the joys and challenges of running a gallery. Later on in her twenties, she bought a pastel drawing of wild ducks William Henry Chandler, her first in a growing collection that has led to what she now has. It seems she has not lost that first love, as many of the paintings and sculptures in her present collection include ducks, geese and other wild birds and animals.
The attachment to her home environment in the East Coast, in general, is quite apparent in Sally Caverly’s art collection. Her experiences and her insights into the life and sensibilities of the people she grew up with and with those she continues to interact with has helped Hawkfield Gallery maintain its charming, rustic quality which attracts many customers who wish to experience the American life even if it is only through art works.
Hawkfield Gallery’s fine arts consultants have helped Sally Caverly maintain quality service and assistance to many satisfied art buyers and collectors. Sally believes in leading others “by experience”; and by her own vast experience, she has proven that it works all the time.
