By: Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum on June 22nd
September 9, 2017 – February 25, 2018
Complementing the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s 2017 Federal Duck Stamp Competition, held at the College of Natural Resources at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, September 15-16, 2017, this Woodson Art Museum exhibition comprises an instructive grouping of preparatory drawings, finished watercolor, presentation print, sheet of stamps, and memorabilia related to Owen J. Gromme’s 1945 winning Federal Duck Stamp artwork, Three Shovelers. The preparatory drawings are among works in the Woodson Art Museum’s collection, thanks to the generosity of Gromme’s daughter, Anne Marie Gromme, who also loaned additional artworks for this exhibition.
