The Mercer Museum presents an extraordinary exhibition, Gather Up the Fragments: The Andrews Shaker Collection.  The exhibit tells the story of the first and most avid collectors of the Shaker art, Faith and Edward Deming Andrews. This exhibition of approximately 200 objects, including crafts, and household objects such as textiles, baskets, kitchen implements, and furniture, is the most comprehensive collection of Shaker materials ever assembled, providing insight into the Andrews’ complex role as pioneers in the field of Shaker studies.  Included with museum admission.

Gather Up the Fragments is organized by Hancock Shaker Village, Pittsfield, MA, and is toured by International Arts & Artists, Washington, DC.
