Saturday, October 8th, 2:30-5:30 ~ Meet Guest Artist Richard Morgan
We are delighted to have native Nutmegger and fine craftsman Richard Morgan as our guest to kick off American Craft Week. Richard will showcase his finely-crafted decoys in store and, weather permitting, Richard may also be carving just outside our door. This is an opportunity to get an up-close look of his extensive collection which may also be purchased on site. Decoys make a wonderful gift for the nature enthusiast or as a decorative object for anyone who appreciates fine craft. The price for these authentic reproductions is surprisingly reasonable, ranging from $25 for the smallest birds up to $110 for the largest.
Richard's work epitomizes the spirit of American Craft as he honors the craftmanship of the past through his "contemporary" work. Carving decoys out of native woods, he carefully paints them to give an aged look. Featured in numerous books, magazines and the cover of an L.L. Bean catalog, these sought-after collectibles may be found in fine shops and galleries throughout the country. We are proud to be among them. :)
