RMEF Recognizes 2014 Premiere Art Program Artists

If a picture is worth a thousand words, what is an original elk painting worth? Answer: plenty!

The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation appreciates fine wildlife art and the talented artists who create it. In fact, RMEF established its art program back in the early 1990s with a goal of recognizing quality artwork and then offering that work to RMEF members around the country via its big game banquet program. 

Below is the announcement highlighting the selections for 2014:
