The Guild was formed in the summer of 1993, in Washington, NC,
when a group of local carvers and wildlife artists expressed an
interest in sharing ideas and techniques. The original group of
approximately 15 members has now grown to over 70 members and
includes many non-carver and non-artist individuals who have an
interest in wildlife and its preservation.
The Guild meets monthly to present programs oriented toward skill
acquisition, ranging from carving techniques to painting
applications in a variety of mediums. Additionally workshops
pertaining to specific skills are offered periodically.
The Guild is dedicated to providing educational activities
associated with wildlife art, conservation of wildlife resources,
and preservation of the wildlife heritage that is so much a part
of Eastern North Carolina.
The development of the first East Carolina Wildlife Arts Festival
was a logical outgrowth of the Guild and a continuation of the
Festival will only enhance the Guild and its education,
conservation and preservation activities.
