November AHA! Night: Mermaid Drawing Class
Thurs. 11/9 5-7PM Center (38 Bethel Street, New Bedford)
Join the Fishing Heritage Center and local artist Tina Jacobsen deVilliers to learn how to draw your very own mermaid and enter your name in a raffle for a chance to win a hand-painted scallop shell featuring one of deVilliers’ signature mermaids! While you’re here, be sure to explore our newest gallery exhibit, Sea Monsters: Real and Imagined to discover different merfolk from around the world, including Celtic Selkie, Eastern European Rusalka, and West African Mami Wata. In honor of Made in New Bedford, we will also be offering a 10% discount in our gift shop.
The daughter and granddaughter of fishermen who emigrated from Norway, Jacobsen deVilliers’ scrimshaw, drawings, and paintings have been featured in several of New Bedford Fishing Heritage Center’s gallery exhibits. Her mermaids have been featured recently in our exhibit Sea Monsters: Real and Imagined as well as in our 2023 Seafood Soirée and Make Waves Online Auction!
