Gallery Opening: Fishboats: Art of the Industry!

September 8 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The “Fishboats: Art of the Industry!” exhibit focuses on artistic renderings of boats in different media (paintings, photographs, wood carvings, and more) made by people involved in the commercial fishing industry.

There will also be a demonstration with remote-controlled lobster boat models.

“Fishboats: Art of the Industry” is supported in part by a grant from the Westport Cultural Council, a local agency supported by the Helen E. Ellis Charitable Trust administered by Bank of America, along with support from the Dartmouth, Fairhaven, Mattapoisett, and New Bedford Cultural Councils, as well as the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
