Cape artists’ work celebrates local heroes

User News Image

Nautical themes run through the work of Cape artists Casey Sherman and Elizabeth Mumford. Whether it is stories of daring ocean rescues or sea-side vistas, their work embodies the feel of what life is like on Cape Cod.

Sherman will be signing his book at the 14th Annual Heroes Breakfast on April 13, in Hyannis, Mass., at the Resort and Conference Center at Hyannis.

Sherman, author of The Finest Hours, and many other titles, will also be honored at the 14th Annual Heroes Breakfast. Sherman’s book focuses on the 1952 rescue of the sailors aboard the SS Pendleton, a tank ship caught in a severe winter storm off Cape Cod.

A painter of seaside life, Mumford paints nautical themes that remind us of the simple pleasures and traditions of our American heritage. For the last three years Mumford has created original artwork for the Heroes Breakfasts, along with creating an original piece of artwork to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Red Cross service on Cape Cod.
 
Sherman’s book will be available for purchase at the breakfast courtesy of Books by the Sea, Osterville. Signed prints of Mumford’s Heroes’ art will also be for sale after the breakfast.

Our Heroes breakfast celebrates the accomplishments of our local community heroes whether through saving a life or enriching and transforming lives over years of service. This year we are recognizing 20 heroes in categories ranging from Life Saving to Community Impact to Individuals with Disabilities.

This event, sponsored by jetBlue, is the most important fund raiser for the Cape chapter.  All proceeds go to fund the continuing assistance the Red Cross provides to residents of Cape Cod, the Islands region and southeast Massachusetts.
