Our 25th year is being celebrated a little differently than festivals in the past. Although we will greatly miss gathering in large groups with our friends at the Fine Art Show and Bird Dog Bash, we have been given a unique opportunity to pour into what is core to the festival:  our artists.  We are dedicated to and look forward to showcasing them longer – through private and personal tours. 

We are excited to announce our Featured Painter for the 25th Wildlife Arts Festival, Tom Swanston, who will be exhibiting through February 19th, 2021.

Swanston celebrates the splendor of nature by mixing organic imagery with opulent color inspired by migration and natural change. His work has been shown in eight museum exhibitions, twenty solo exhibitions, more than fifty group exhibitions, and over sixty-five publications. He is a recipient of two Ford Foundation grants, a Rubenstein Foundation grant, and is a Fellow at the Hambidge Center for Arts and Sciences.

Joining Swanston for this Exhibition are featured artists from past festivals. We are excited to offer private tours through January 10, 2021 to our community for these artists, and through February 19th, 2021 for Tom Swanston.
