Art Show Highlights

33rd Annual Wildlife in Art Show in November 2022

Our 33nd Annual Wildlife in Art Show this year is an amazing and awe-inspiring collection of high caliber wildlife art. Kathryn Hansen (our show Juror) had quite a challenging time. First, she had to choose only about 80 of the 145 artworks that were entered into our open show by 74 artists. Then she had a more difficult task of only being able to select the very few award winners in the show. As you might expect, she would have liked to have been able to jury in more artworks than the limit and certainly wanted to recognize more artworks and artists.  After our Juror was done, our very generous Business, Group and Individual Sponsors arrived and made their award-winning selections for the show.

Our Wildlife show will be exhibited in our Porter Hall Gallery and on-line during the month of November and through December 8th this year.  Bravo and congratulations to all artists who entered in this year’s show. Congratulations!

 We also give our sincere heartfelt special thanks to all our show volunteers and sponsors who generously supported and contributed to our show’s success.
