Though having made the announcement a couple months back, after receiving the 'call' from Kathy Foley, the director of the Woodson Art Museum, that I will be honored this fall with the Master Wildlife Artist medal at the opening of this year's edition of 'Birds in Art', it is official today with the release of press announcements. A nice little article in the Wausau Daily Herald speaks to that. Thanks to Keith Uhlig for an interesting interview yesterday. And, it is also the day that the museum has sent out word of the artists and art works that were selected by the jury for this year's exhibition. I'm pleased to see that so many artist friends have 'made the cut' this year, disappointed for those who did not and excited in general to once again, be a part of such a well respected and internationally recognized annual art event.
