About the Exhibit

February 1, 2017 - February 27, 2017

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.

What People Are Saying

We went here because one of our kids wasn't feeling too well so we looked for options that were softer than trekking (summers) , and we absolutely loved it . The art work is fascinating and beautiful and varied ...a must visit - esp if its a rainy day :)
