Decoys from the Collection of Dr. Lloyd Newberry
September 12, 2015 - December 1, 2015
Dr. Lloyd Newberry, an avid big-game hunter, author, and retired educator, began collecting decoys in the late 1960s. Fascinated by the wooden birds, he took several trips northward along the East Coast from his Georgia home, seeking out fellow decoy collectors, antique shops, and carvers, purchasing a variety of hand-carved, painted birds and listening to the stories of craftsmen and hunters. Today early American decoys are highly collectible and widely recognized as a true form of early American folk art.
