Please join award-winning artist Gregg Roberts for a presentation of “The History of Sailor’s Valentines,” a traditional style of folk-art once crafted by sailors in the whaling industry. These designs utilize a broad selection of natural shells and flat rope knotting techniques painstakingly made by the artist. Roberts will discuss both what goes into creating such works and the cultural significance of the tradition.

Gregg Roberts’ Sailor’s Valentines can be found at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, where he lectures and holds classes for novice artisans, and at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. His art was recently featured in the January 2018 issue of Cape Cod Magazine.

This event will take place on Thursday, July 12 at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free, and all are welcome to attend.
