Call for Entries – Wildlife Carving and Waterfowl Decoy Show

To showcase our amazing local talent, we are planning a Wildlife Carving and Waterfowl Decoy Show that will take place during the Opening Reception. We encourage submissions of wildlife or waterfowl-themed carvings, and other works that fit our waterfowl conservation theme. Artists will handle any sales directly and receive 100% of sale profits.

Not a carver but own historical decoys or waterfowling equipment you would like to showcase? Historical submissions with written descriptions are encouraged too!
