Antioch Historical Society Museum to host Art & Our Delta show in February

Feb2016DeltaExhibitThe Antioch Historical Society will host Art & Our Delta at the museum, featuring photographs by Larry Kramm, decoy and bird carvings by several artists, and Saturday demonstrations of carving by Jim Burcio.

The art of decoy carving is considered one of the five authentic American art forms, as it originated with the Indians of North American and was then turned into wood carving by the first American settlers. It is an art form that did not exist in Europe.

The show opens Wednesday, February 3rd and Saturday the 6th will be the first big day with Burcio demonstrating wood carving of his shore birds. They hope to have one Saturday (possibly Feb. 20th) with antique decoys for sale.

The museum is located at 1500 West Fourth Street. For more information call (925) 757-1326.
