At Rest, In Flight: Cape Cod Bird Carvings

Exhibition Website

Aug 23 2017 - Oct 8 2017

The art and craft of bird carving has an important history on Cape Cod where the Cape’s rich bird life has drawn both bird watchers and bird carvers alike. This exhibition surveys the history of decoys and the change of the craft into a unique art form. Artists included are considered masters in the field who have the ability to capture wildlife subjects in precise detail, such as historic carvers Eldridge Arnold and A. Elmer Crowell, as well a number of prominent contemporary carvers.
