Master quarterboard carver Nick Lonborg will be on hand at the Museum for a free demonstration of his craft on Sunday, December 28 from 1-3 pm. Born in South Korea, Nick came to the United States when he was seven. This veteran of Desert Storm is "carving a future by preserving the past" in his quarterboards, the rectangular, wooden signs once used to name ships. He uses only hand tools to create these masterpieces adorned with scallop shells or flowers and bold 24-karat gold-leaf letters. He is one of the artists featured in "Keepers of Tradition: Art and Folk Heritage in Massachusetts" currently on view.
