Wednesday, Feb. 1 – Monday, Feb. 27 2017 in the Wapiti Gallery
This stunning exhibit features the original, Best of Show art from each state, territory and district in the United States. There are 52 artworks by students who won their state 2016 contest. Each 9×12 inch piece is a unique, detailed depiction of waterfowl and habitat. The Jr. Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is a dynamic art-and science-based curriculum created by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. It teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. Artistic media represented in the exhibit includes oil paint, acrylic, colored pencil, watercolor, graphite, gouache, and pastel.
The winning piece from Wyoming was created by 15-year-old Bailey Shupp of Pinedale, WY; it’s a striking oil painting of a Harlequin Duck.
Transformations: Wildlife in Inuit Art and CultureThrough May 5, 2024
Through cultural stories, Transformations seeks to explore Inuit history, values, and beliefs. The exhibit is comprised of works from the permanent collection and items on loan from private collections. The hope, as it is with all exhibits, is that visitors take away a deeper appreciation of the artwork and perhaps are introduced to something that they did not know before. Most importantly, we want to bring attention to the fact that today Inuit artists are producing powerful artworks that reference histories and that, at the same time, confront contemporary issues such as conservation and environmental concerns.See the Exhibit
