Wood Ducks by Frank Newmyer

Is taxidermy a valid form of wildlife art? This question has been debated in the taxidermy profession for decades. This trio of woodies in a stylized blue heron habitat won the 2005 Carl E. Akeley Award for the entry that best represents taxidermy as a valid form of wildlife art. The artist was  none other than Frank Newmyer of Gladwin, Michigan. Frank becomes the first person to win this award a second time. His first Akeley Award was at the first World Show in 1983. See pages 84 and 85 for a review of the 2005 Akeley and Master of Masters winners.
