Eastern Shore artist David Turner has a talent of capturing the beauty and motion of wildlife in bronze. Since 1983, David and his father, William, have created more than 400 different limited edition bronzes and more than 50 large public commissions.  The works range in size from life-size mice and wrens to full-size bears and dolphins

Jim Wilson of Yorktown has worked professionally for over 35 years developing a reputation as a renowned wildlife artist. He has traveled the world to sketch and study the wildlife of our planet. Through his art, Jim Wilson hopes to share a concern for wildlife conservation and reverence for the natural world that inspires his work.
