In collaboration with the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission (AGFC) and the Arkansas Game and Fish Foundation (AGFF), Historic Cane Hill, Inc. will host an exhibition for the Arkansas State Quail and Turkey Stamp Art Competition at the Historic Cane Hill Gallery beginning March 16.
The artwork from this national competition will portray the northern bobwhite quail and eastern wild turkey, two species important to the natural heritage of the Ozarks region.
The exhibition will feature selections from the juried competition, including winning entries for each category, which will appear on the 2024 Quail and Turkey stamps issued by the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission. Also on display will be turkey calls made by nationally recognized call makers Don and Sarah Clark.
