TED CAINE ’04 PRESENTS:  “THE MANY FACES OF WILLISTON: A PORTRAIT RETROSPECTIVE BY ELIZABETH SOLLEY CAINE”
In 2003, Elizabeth Solley Caine held an art show in the Grubbs Gallery at Williston Northampton School consisting entirely of Williston student and staff portraits. Twenty years later, Elizabeth passed away after a yearslong battle with cancer in the spring of 2023. Back in the Grubbs Gallery, her son, Ted Caine ’04, is recreating her show as a retrospective for his 20-year reunion. From Elizabeth’s original artist statement: “I appreciate all these young people, their energy, intelligence, individuality, talent and beauty… to capture some of them, some part of them, on canvas…”
