5th Annual Potomac Wildlife Art & Decoy Show

The Community Foundation of Charles County’s 5th Annual Potomac Wildlife Art & Decoy Show is an art and decoy exhibit celebrating the Potomac’s natural beauty through the eyes of some of the most acclaimed decoy carvers and wildlife artists in the region. The show directly benefits the community: proceeds from the show will support both the foundation and its grant program, and the newly created scholarship supporting the arts at the College of Southern Maryland. Donations to the Community Foundation are welcome and appreciated.

In addition to the contemporary wildlife art and decoys on display, members of the Potomac Decoy Collectors Association will be exhibiting antique duck decoys for show and sale.
