To have the essence of the egg world in Egg Harbor would include three things for Curator Kathleen Mand Beck: a prehistoric egg, a wild bird egg collection and a Fabergé. In 1994, her dreams seemed nearly impossible. Now in the 17th season, the Dovetail Gallery's museum is fulfilled with the most recent acquisition of the wild bird egg collection.
"My hope for the Dovetail is to be a gallery of wonderful artwork and also a comfortable place for our visitors to learn about the
artists, their mediums and their techniques. I enjoy displaying unusual fine art and fine craft along with the decorated
eggs. The history of our restored 1873 log building and some of our art treasures add to the wonder. It truly has become a magical blend of art and nature," says Kathy.
Her next big dream is to have an eagle egg. The only people allowed to have an egg or feather from this awesome, symbolic bird are Native American Indians, but one could be displayed on loan in the gallery.
