Middle Creek Wildlife Art show to return this week

HARRISBURG — The Middle Creek Wildlife Art Show will return this year from Aug. 5-7 at the Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area Visitors Center. The show features hundreds of original paintings and fine-art prints from 25 of the best-known wildlife artists in the state.

The show is free, and the hours are: Friday, Aug. 5, 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, Aug. 6, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Sunday, Aug. 7, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The show is returning after a two-year hiatus due to COVID-19 restrictions and building renovations.

An original elk print by featured artist Sheree Daugherty will be raffled off, as will 2022 Working Together for Wildlife and Pennsylvania Duck Stamp prints. Proceeds from the raffle will benefit The Wildlands Preservation Fund land acquisition program.
