The Jay Vawter Decoy Collection

Past Exhibits

Predators and Prey;
Fine-art carvings of raptors and songbirds
November 6 – December 28, 2017

This exhibit includes a selection of working decoys more than 100 years old. Jay Vawter made a generous gift of his prize-winning decoys to D&R Greenway in 2012. “With this exhibition we want to give a sense of how decoys went from being a hunter’s tool and craft to a fine art,” says Vawter, a retired investment counselor and avid photographer who has traveled the world, amassing his decoy collection. “The first three in the case, on loan from Ron Kobli of Frenchtown’s Decoy & Wildlife Gallery, were actually used by hunters to lure birds.”

Renowned carvers represented in this exhibit include Bob Biddle, John English, Lem Ward, Jim Sprinkle, Pat Godin, Bob Guge, Greg Pederson, Elmer Crowell and Ben Heinemann.

Special thanks to Decoy Gallery Curator Jay Vawter, and to Ron Kobli of Frenchtown’s Decoy & Wildlife Gallery, for loans of early carvings from their personal collections.
