Abstract :
Examines the historical processes by which certain crafts in southern New Jersey's coastal communities have assumed a significantly representational role for the region. These crafts - waterfowl and fish decoys and carvings, model fishing and hunting boats, and various painting schemes that draw from high art traditions - express the most enduring elements of the local economy, local history and cultural fabric. These craft producers all share long-standing affiliations to the region, but their backgrounds and training vary. They are a distinct, interactive community that constantly shares ideas and pursues consensus. This complexly constructed consensus has been fostered by their self-defined role as arbiters and vital presenters of local history and culture - a role reinforced by the attention they receive from museums, cultural organizations, historians, the folk art market and the tourist. ;
