The Wendell Gilley Museum is a community center that celebrates the life and work of Wendell Gilley, a pioneer in the field of decorative bird carving. It teaches the art of bird carving and presents art exhibitions and educational programs with a special focus on people, nature and art. The Museum endeavors to inspire appreciation of the visual arts, engagement in artistic creativity, and respect and care for the natural world.
Spring has finally arrived in earnest in Southwest Harbor, Maine, home of the Wendell Gilley Museum. Warblers and hummingbirds animate the blossoming trees and the voices of thrushes and other songbirds have joined the frog chorus. Public hours resume at the Museum this Friday the 22nd of May and the Spring Open House and Carving Show follows on Sunday, May 24th from noon - 4 pm. Stop in this weekend if you can or look for photographs on Facebook.
