    Joe Miles, Jamie Outman, Paul Thompson, Andrew Harris and Myself from The Artistry of Wildlife and our piece "THE CHASE " has been accepted into ARTPRIZE.

    As of last week over 1600 entries were entered and we are amongst the 534 to date that have been accepted.

    The Venue that Picked us , is The Gerald R Ford Presidential Museum In Downtown Grand Rapids

    The curator told me each year the entire staff votes on the piece or pieces they want to accept.

    This year and only this year the entire staff picked " THE CHASE " as a piece they wanted to sponsor and display at the museum. It was a unanimous vote and that had never happened before.

    The show is international with entries from around the world. With awards of over $360,000.00 being give out.

    If you are in Grand Rapids at the Time of the show please remember us and the taxidermy industry as a whole as we compete head to head in public voting against all the other art forms entered.

  2. Good luck Dennis. That is an amazing piece!

    You have brought the taxidermy industry to a truly artistic level.Our industry has grown in leaps and bounds with the artistry of those such as yourself.

    May you succeed in winning and showing the world that there are no limits to which the present day taxidermis can not achieve and aspire.

    Are you gonna put on one of those two sided advertising things and walk around promoting the peice? Are you handing out cards with the picture and number of the entry for people to remember what to vote for?

    I attended last year and its awsome. Now this year I'll be able to say I have a peice in it. So cool!
  15. That is awesome Dennis I look forward to seeing your guys work there.
    That is a great event that the wife and I enjoy every year they have had it and got a great venue to be at.

    Best of luck guys.

    Good luck Den. I entered two years ago. My work showed at the Plaza Towers. You may have seen the bronzed sheep I entered at the MTA show two years ago. Maybe not. It was the only entry not photographed. I guess not all people like art. ;)
