This exciting exhibit, on loan from private collectors, features the work of Cape Cod's master carvers Elmer Crowell, Cleon Crowell, Preston Wright, Luther Nickerson, James Lapham, Eldridge Arnold and Arnold Melbye. Also included in the exhibition are 14 oil paintings by Russell W. Gordon, portraying the native bird species of the eastern United States. His richly detailed and carefully composed paintings reflect Dutch Golden Era and Italian Renaissance sensibilities, yet remind us that simple and natural beauty are timeless and unchanged. Gordon's paintings are available for purchase. The exhibit may be viewed daily from 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 1pm to 4pm. Admission is by donation.
