July 2015 Featured Member Kathy Coggeshall
Kathleen Coggeshall, member of the Visual Arts Group, won two Honorable Mentions for her photography in the June Issue of Cape Cod Life magazine. In this issue, Cape Cod Life announced the winners of the 2015 Best of Cape Cod & the Islands. 2,500 photos were submitted for consideration.
Her picture, ‘Hyannis Whale Watch Cruises’ won Honorable Mention – Photographer’s Choice.
Kathy’s second picture of ‘Sandy Neck Lighthouse & Cottages, Barnstable’ won Honorable Mention – Recognizable Places in Cape Cod Life magazine and then won BEST OF SHOW at the Upper Cape Camera Club show at Falmouth Public Library now through August 8th.
Kathy is fairly new to the world of photography having purchasing her first Canon DSLR three years ago. Since then she has become an avid photographer and recently travelled to Yellowstone National Park and Utah with Road Scholar Photography programs. Animals, birds and sunsets are her favorite things.
Does she look familiar? That is because Kathy is the Office Manager at Sandwich Town Hall and the Secretary to our Town Manager Bud Dunham and the Board of Selectmen since 1986.
In her spare time, Kathy plays Mama to her barn full of llamas. She raises them and shears them with lots of help from friends, and then spins the wool and knits beautiful warm hats, mittens, scarves and more. What a great holiday or birthday present they make!
