Decoy Carver's Association Decoy Show  -  Chincoteague Island
(8/30/2014 - 8/31/2014)

Chincoteague Island


Decoy & Art Festival

 

Labor Day Weekend

 

Chincoteague Center

6155 Community Drive

Chincoteague, VA  23336

 

 Chincoteague Decoy Carvers’ and Artists’ Association host the traditional Labor Day Weekend Decoy and Art Festival in the Happiest Seaside Town in America.

 

Show hours

Saturday, August 30th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Sunday, August 31st from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

 

Admission

$3 per day

$5 for a two day pass

Children under 12 are admitted free

 

Lunch will be available

 

Joe Engers of Decoy Magazine will be a vendor at the show and will be assisting in appraisals and identification of decoys. He has an extensive knowledge of the decoy collecting world.

 

Decoy carving began as a method of preparing wooden replicas of waterfowl which, when placed on the water, attract live birds for hunters. In more recent years, decoy carving has become a mastered art where exquisite examples can fetch high dollars at auction. Another facet of decoy carving is strictly as folk art where primitive or whimsical designs can be as sought-after as the finely detailed works of other carvers.

 

Other exhibitors include Bob Tolley, Nancy Richards West, Billy Crockett, Bill Veasey, Shannon Dimmig, David Robbin, Rose Taylor, Karen Pruitt, Vince Ciesielski, Laura Ellison, Grover Cantwell, and Donnie Thornton to name a few. It promises to be a superb showing of local and regional talent.

 

Take home a treasure of fine art, photography, jewelry or decoys. World renowned artists and artisans make this show a fabulous way to bid farewell to summer on Chincoteague Island.
