Sandwich Glass Museum: A Fascinating Display Of Glassware From the 1800’s and The Present

When exploring Sandwich, a fascinating place to check out is the Sandwich Glass Museum, 129 Main Street. The museums numerous galleries chronicle, with great displays, the types of glassware produced from 1825- 1888 at the Boston & Sandwich Glass Company (the factory was located not far from the museum’s site.) There is also a glassblowing demonstration with artist Alex Kilker and through December “The Twelve Days of Christmas” an “exhibition of original art from nationally-known glass artists.” The gift shop offers an incredible display of colorful works to purchase. A special thanks to the museum’s Executive Director, Katherine Campbell, who gave a great synopsis of the history of Sandwich Glass.

As a child, spending summers in North Truro, I thought Cape Cod began at the Wellfleet Drive-In and ended at Provincetown. As a photographer, I now know that all the Cape towns leading to the canal have their own unique beauty and charm.

Roughly 30 years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the legendary photographer Dick Kelsey and as owner of Kelsey-Kennard have specialized in aerial photography as well as landscape/scenic, portraits, weddings, and photographing events on the Cape, the Islands, and beyond.

Photographs from our Gallery in Chatham are displayed in homes and businesses locally and world-wide.

Besides photography I also enjoy boating/ fishing (fish are usually very safe when I’m out there,) gardening and tennis. Cape Cod is a very special place and I look forward to sharing my images with you as I travel about.
