Artist of the Month

Friday, August 16, 2019

Francis Sweet says, “As a wildlife artist, my goal has always been to depict animals, wild and domestic, as realistically as I possibly can.” He wants the viewer of his work to experience the subject as a correct and accurate image. Francis arrived on the wildlife art scene by winning the 1987 Maryland Duck Stamp Competition. He then went on to win several other state stamp competitions. He has received the Award of Excellence by the prestigious Society of Animal Artists for four years and their Leonard Meiselman Award for realism. Those are just a few of his many awards and achievements. His amazing work will be on exhibit during August and September. Come to the reception and welcome him to the Center.
