(Sept. 22, 2017 − DALLAS) – Sally Maxwell, a popular, prolific artist and exhibitor at the DSC Convention and Expo, has been selected as the Artist of the Year for Legacy 2018. Maxwell’s art is primarily on scratchboard, which produces stunning works depicting the beauty of nature. Her subjects range from wildlife to people, and show a meticulous attention to detail and color through the effects possible with scratchboard.
“The decision to choose Sally as Artist of the Year was an easy one. She and her husband have been with DSC for a long time, and her work has been on the ‘must-have’ list for many of our members,” said Craig Nyhus, DSC President.
Sally began exhibiting and working with Dallas Safari Club in 2004. She has donated many works of art to the Annual Convention auctions, and her images have been featured on the covers of DSC Publications over the years. Sally andhusband George live in La Grange, Texas.
Maxwell will have a special auction item included in the live auction line-up and will have artwork featured on the cover of the Convention issue of Game Trails for 2018. That magazine will hit mailboxes beginning Dec. 10, 2017.
Auction items will be available for viewing soon on www.biggame.org, and the full-color auction catalog will be mailed to members in mid-November.
The DSC Convention and Expo will be held in the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center and Omni Hotel in Dallas Jan. 4-7, 2018. Sportsmen and women are invited to be a part of another record-breaking event to help support conservation, education and hunter advocacy initiatives around the world. The theme this year is Legacy.
The four-day celebration of the outdoor lifestyle is open to the public and is one of America’s premier fundraisers for conservation. The DSC 2017 convention raised more than $6 million for wildlife programs, public education and hunter advocacy worldwide. While it is not a requirement for attendance, between 400-500 new members will join DSC at the convention to help promote the mission and programs of the organization.
