Art of the Decoy-Hampton History Museum

Yesterday I had the pleasure of filming the new exhibit \ gallery at the Hampton History Museum called "Art of the Decoy". This is presented from February 27-August 31, 2009, in cooperation with the Havre de Grace Decoy Museum. The gallery is on the second floor of the Museum and is a must see for any Decoy enthusiast. I have included just a few pics here today. You may contact the Hampton History Museum at 757 727 1610 or log on to the web at http://www.hampton1610.com/contactus_hhm.cfm

The Hampton History Museum is in close proximity to many, many excellent downtown attractions. Starting May 9th, don't forget to come by this years Downtown Farmers Market. The Farmers Market is scheduled every Saturday beginning May 9th through October 31st in Carousel Park, 8 a.m. - 12 noon. Come out and enjoy fresh local produce, seafood, fresh cut flowers and herbs, homemade pies, jams and preserves, crafts and more. Look for the Downtown Hampton booth and purchase an environmentally friendly "Market Bag" to carry your goodies home.
I like this Farmers market because it is located right on the water, downtown by the Carousel Virginia Air and Space Center, the New Crowne Plaza Hotel, and there is also a great new coffee shop that has just opened up. All along the waterfront in Downtown Hampton by the Farmers Market!
The "Art of the Decoy" exhibit will last threw August 31st, so be sure to check it out while your in Hampton!
See ya on the water. Tog bite is on!!
