ARTIST STATEMENT:

Delve into a collection of whimsical model ships created by V.B. Britton.  This former West Frankfort, Illinois resident built over 1000 ships in his lifetime. While Britton displayed a large collection of his ships in his house and garage, many were given away to friends and family. This exhibition highlights his obvious interest in seafaring vessels and his indelible eye for creative design and found object ingenuity. 

A special thanks to Charles and Frances Swedlund for sharing their collection with Cedarhurst for this exhibition.
