"All About Scrimshaw" Gallery Tour and Seminar
Eldred’s, in conjunction with the Antique Scrimshaw Collectors Association, will host an informal “All About Scrimshaw” gallery tour and seminar about the history of whalemen art and collecting scrimshaw on Wednesday, November 20 at 5 p.m.
The event is free and open to anyone with an interest in scrimshaw, whether just admiring it at museums or owning a vast collection already.
Attendees will be able to examine 250 pieces of scrimshaw up-close, with Eldred’s staff and ASCA members on-hand to answer questions. There will also be brief presentations about starting (or growing!) a collection, identifying genuine pieces of scrimshaw, and resources to learn more about the art form.
Although the event is free, advance registration is requested. To RSVP, please contact Cheryl Stewart, head of marketing at Eldred’s, at 508-385-3116 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The event will be held at Eldred’s headquarters at 1483 Route 6A in East Dennis, Mass.
