Construction of What the Birds Know

Music: Rain Down And Fall Away by adcBicycle.

At first blush it might remind them of a bird nest. But as reverberations take place, you go from the natural world and things you felt — your first kiss — to the art, the shape, the drawn quality, the animation in the surface.

The Crowninshield-Bentley House











Stop by to see What the Birds Know, Dougherty's new Stickwork daily 8 am-6 pm.

Crowninshield-Bentley House (126 Essex St., Salem), was built about 1727 for fish merchant and ship captain John Crowninshield. Like most houses in 18th-century Salem, it originally stood at the curb. Characteristics of its Georgian Colonial style include its long, rectangular shape with an orderly symmetrical facade, and the paneled door with pediment, transom lights and pilasters, all reflecting an interest in classicism. The building is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
