CBMM to present Roy E. Walsh exhibition at Waterfowl Festival

The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will present Gunning the Chesapeake: The Artwork and Guidance of Roy E. Walsh at Easton’s annual Waterfowl Festival next month.

The exhibition curated from CBMM’s extensive waterfowling collection showcases a selection of Walsh’s original artworks and decoys by the carvers whose work he touted in his 1960 book, Gunning the Chesapeake: Duck and Goose Shooting on the Eastern Shore. It will be on display as part of the Artifacts Exhibit at Easton High School throughout the festival, which runs Nov. 11-13.
