Spring marks the beginning of turkey season, a time cherished by many outdoor enthusiasts. It’s a season that beckons hunters to immerse themselves in the beauty of nature and the thrill of the hunt. The Turkey Grand Slam Show celebrates this passion with a curated collection of artworks that capture the essence of the wild turkey and the adventure of pursuing them.

Featuring a diverse array of pieces, each showcasing a different subspecies of the wild turkey, the exhibition offers a glimpse into the world of turkey hunting. Whether you are calling in a Rio Grande, putting a sneak on an Osceola in the Florida swamps, tracking a Merriam in the mountains, or getting your first Eastern gobbler of the season, these works will surely heighten your excitement for spring turkeys!

For hunters, the Turkey Grand Slam represents the pinnacle of achievement, requiring them to harvest each of the four wild turkey subspecies found in North America. It’s a challenge that demands skill, perseverance, and a deep connection to the natural world. As visitors explore the exhibit, they’ll find themselves immersed in the excitement and anticipation of spring turkey hunting.

The appeal of the Turkey Grand Slam Show extends beyond the hunting community. Each artwork offers a glimpse into the beauty of these magnificent birds and the landscapes they inhabit. Through the strokes of the artist’s brush, viewers are transported to the heart of the wilderness, where every rustle of leaves and distant gobble evokes a sense of wonder and adventure.

This exhibition not only celebrates the thrill of turkey hunting but also showcases the mastery of painting and bronze sculpture by a talented lineup of artists. Julie Jeppsen, Ford Riley, Peggy Watkins, Calvin Carter, Bucky Bowles, Walter Matia, and John Kobald bring their unique perspectives and artistic styles to the exhibit, capturing the essence of each wild turkey subspecies with remarkable skill and precision.
