Coast to Coast: The Pacific Decoy Collection of Richard and Dorothy Wheeler

Charleston Marriott (Get Directions)

Feb 17 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Other dates and times:

Richard and Dorothy Wheeler began collecting decoys in 1960 and were founding members of the Pacific Flyway Decoy Association. Their collection contains important examples by the region’s premier makers from Southern California up to British Columbia. Highlights include a George McLellan (1897-1887) flying brant, a Jerry Mastin (1880-1959) standing goose, The “Hi” Crandall (1892-1969) Sleepy Mallard Drake, and a Los Banos pintail drake, also known as a “West Coast Dudley.” The collection is meticulously documented and prominently featured in both of the West Coast’s preeminent decoy books. This is the greatest opportunity ever presented on the East Coast to view the best of the West.
