The Lure of the Fish
This exhibition concentrates on what “lures” artists to portray the fish. Is it a love affair with the wonders of the fish? Is it the structure, design and color of the fish? Come and see the exhibition to decide for yourself!

The mission of the Cahoon Museum of American Art is to promote love and enjoyment of the visual arts through exhibits, educational programs, and continuing development of its permanent collection. The museum both celebrates the legacy of Cape Cod folk artists Ralph and Martha Cahoon, displaying their art and preserving the historic building that was their home and studio, and embraces the full vitality of American art with emphasis on past and present artists of Cape Cod and the Northeast.
