The Ohio Valley Art League and the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources are inviting artists to enter the 2016 Kentucky National Wildlife Art Exhibit. This is the 12th biennial year for this juried wildlife exhibit.

The exhibit is open to residents 18 years or older of the United States. Artists may enter up to two works of art in any two- or three-dimensional media including oil, acrylic, pastel, watercolor, colored pencil, charcoal, scratchboard and sculpture created in wood, bronze, other metals or stone. No photography will be accepted. Wildlife depicted must be native to the United States. Entries are being accepted for judging through July 29.

Artists may submit digital images of their artwork on CD or in an email to the Ohio Valley Art League. Initial judging of these images will determine which works will be selected for the exhibit. Awards totaling more $12,000 will be presented.

The exhibit will open to the public this October at the Henderson Fine Arts Center. Artists should go online to to download a prospectus and for additional information and cost of entry fee.
