Canadian artists help paint a positive future for conservation

The 2016 Ducks Unlimited portfolio has released their lineup, and we are so proud of our very own, Conrad Mieschke!

Mieschke is one of 15 artists who have been selected for the 2016 National Art Portfolio – a signature Ducks Unlimited Canada art program which raises essential funds for wetland conservation. These paintings will be made into high-quality, limited edition prints which will receive national exposure through DUC fundraising initiatives. The money raised through the portfolio supports DUC’s habitat conservation projects, research and education programs.

“For more than 30 years, our National Art Portfolio has grown into an amazing fundraising program. We promote outstanding artists who understand how essential wetland conservation is to the health of our water, wildlife and environment,” says Scott Baker, DUC’s national manager of retail programs.

Throughout 2016, their art prints will be auctioned at fundraising events and sealed bid auction easels across the country. Prints are also available online through DUC’s online sealed bid auction. To view this year’s Portfolio or bid on some artwork, visit ducks.ca/nap.

We are so excited for Conrad Mieschke, and proud to host his artwork at the Gallery on the Lake.
