AMERICA'S PARKS Through the Beauty of Art
is an exhibition competition open to all artists, the purpose of which is to  recognize and promote excellence in original artworks depicting any park (national, state, provincial, county, city) in Canada, Mexico and The United States.

Selections will be made by a professional jury consisting of:

  • M. Stephen Doherty, Editor, PleinAir™ Magazine
  • Susan T. Fisher, American Society of Botanical Artists Past President and former Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum Art Institute Director
  • Todd Wilkinson, Managing Editor, Wildlife Art Journal

The 2013 inaugural exhibition of AMERICA'S PARKS Through the Beauty of Art is scheduled as the first of three, with others to follow in 2014 and 2015. The 2013 inaugural  exhibition will premiere in Bolivar, Missouri from March 17– April 14, 2013 at the Ella Carothers Dunnegan Gallery of Art. The Dunnegan is a noteworthy museum that has hosted such notable traveling museum exhibitions as Art and the Animal, of The Society of Animal Artists, Blossom ~ Art of Flowers, sponsored by The Susan K. Black Foundation, Exquisite Miniatures by Wes and Rachelle Siegrist, and Paws and Reflect: Art of Canines, all of which have toured under the auspices of David J. Wagner, L.L.C. The Dunnegan has also had a tradition of hosting park art  exhibits, notably, ARTS FOR THE PARKS. Coincidentally,  David J. Wagner proposed the very first tour of the ARTS FOR THE PARKS exhibition, served as a Juror for that exhibit, managed the ARTS FOR THE PARKS tour for its first five years (1988–93), and served on the Advisory Board of its parent  organization, the National Park Art Academy. AMERICA'S PARKS Through the Beauty of Art (hereafter "PARKS") is an entirely new initiative, produced by David J. Wagner, L.L.C. with a tour pending.
