Wallace Nutting Exhibition: Works from the Collection of Kenneth & Sharon Lacasse at the Cahoon Museum of American Art on Cape Cod

The Cahoon Museum of American Art announces it has received a loan of works from the collection of Kenneth and Sharon Lacasse of Cape Cod. The collection entails a large selection of bench made Wallace Nutting furniture, Wallace Nutting photographs, iron, books, treenware, and other Wallace Nutting memorabilia.

Wallace Nutting (1861-1941) was a U.S. minister, photographer, artist and antiquarian, primarily known for his hand-colored photographs.  He also was an accomplished author, lecturer, furniture maker, antiques expert and collector. 


Wallace Nutting sought to bring what he believed to be traditional values and aesthetics into contemporary life by preserving old buildings, manufacturing new goods in past styles and creating works of art depicting early American scenes. The upcoming exhibition (August 25-October 11, 2015) will showcase what extraordinary works he created during his lifetime, including photographs, furniture and iron work.
