Delta artist chosen for Ducks Unlimited Canada portfolio
A Delta artist is among a talented line-up chosen by Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) to provide their artwork to the National Art Portfolio (NAP) in an effort to raise much-needed funds for wetland conservation.
Each year, hundreds of artists submit their artwork in hope of being chosen for the NAP. Those who are selected have their artwork made into high-quality, limited edition prints and are given national exposure through DUC fundraising initiatives. The money raised through the NAP supports DUC’s on-the-ground wetland conservation work, scientific research and education programs.
Delta's Fred Buchwitz's work will be among those featured.
“The National Art Portfolio is a unique program that not only promotes our country’s outstanding nature artists, but the growing need to conserve the natural areas that inspire their work,” said Loraine Nyokong, DUC’s national director of fundraising and membership. “DUC is fortunate to have a long and illustrious relationship with talented Canadian artists, and we look forward to continuing this relationship in the future.”
For more than 30 years, artists have donated their artwork to help DUC conserve vanishing wetland habitats. DUC’s event fundraising season is now underway and people are encouraged to attend events to view the 2012 NAP collection.
Prints are also available through DUC’s Sealed Bid Auction program, and are displayed at over 3,000 locations across Canada.
