Your Journey Begins
Shattering the Lens, an exhibit at the National Lighthouse Museum in Staten Island, New York sheds light on the dynamic impact of female lighthouse keepers.
With five female keepers, New Canal may hold
record for the most female light keepers.
Margaret Norvell who faithfully served for nearly 41 years is remembered for her valiant rescues.
The lighthouse has been rebuilt several times and one lighthouse was auctioned.
The present New Canal Lighthouse is a replica that was built after severe damage from Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Rita in 2005.
The wood from the 1890 lighthouse is now a part of the current 2013 lighthouse.
Discover the compelling story within my radiant lighthouse paintings at the Voices of lighthouses exhibit in Manhattan, New York.
Like the pulsing rays from the lens, each painting releases the soul of a lighthouse. My paintings exude peace, beauty and wonder.
Don’t miss the FREE exhibit, Voices of Lighthouses, Sept 21-October 20 at the Lilac Preservation Project. See evocative, colorful and affordable prints at the Lilac Preservation Project docked at Pier 25 in Manhattan, New York.
The Lilac is a retired Coast Guard cutter that transported supplies to lighthouses. It is America’s only surviving steam-powered lighthouse tender.
