Works By Wendell Gilley

ongoing exhibition

True to its name, the Museum always features substantial and changing exhibits of bird carvings by Wendell Gilley. From his first miniature drake to a life-size turkey, over one hundred birds from Gilley's carving career are on display. Workbenches, tools, and works-in-progress provide insight to the process of carving, while nesting eagles and loons illustrate elements of the lifecycle of birds. The beauty of both birds and the artform is evident in the carving, texturing, and painting of the pieces.

Check our exhibits page for more information about our current and past exhibitions.
