Let’s tour . . .
four of the most diverse, vast and spectacular natural areas in South Carolina!
The SCDNR’s Wildlife Management Area and Heritage Trust programs will be spotlighted in a spectacular commemorative art tour and essay created by John E. Davis for the May-June 2020 edition of South Carolina Wildlife magazine. This will be a keepsake edition to treasure and share with family and friends!
The public lands featured in this art collection are managed and protected by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. “Each is a jewel in the crown of an incredibly successful program to preserve and protect South Carolina’s natural wealth for present and future generations,” says Davis.
Join the SCDNR, South Carolina Wildlife magazine staff and artist John E. Davis in celebrating the SCDNR’s Wildlife Management Area and Heritage Trust programs — almost eight decades of conservation success — through this commemorative edition of SCW magazine!
John E. Davis’ “Jewels in the Crown” art collection will soon be on display at the South Carolina State Library. Stay tuned for details!
Davis’ paintings begin with careful observation, honed by a keen understanding of the outdoor world and the animals that inhabit it. His childhood interest in the natural world and art was enhanced by 22 years as editor of South Carolina Wildlife magazine where he worked with fellow natural resource professionals and many of our nation’s foremost wildlife artists. His continuing intensive study of painting techniques, design and the effects of light and shadow allow him to express his passion for a natural world that was once familiar to all. Davis’ artwork may be viewed at jedavisfineart.com.
Jewels in the Crown is a commemorative essay and collection of original artwork created for the May-June issue of South Carolina Wildlife by former SCW Editor John Davis. Make sure your subscription is up-to-date to secure this keepsake edition! SCW will hold an exclusive viewing of the artwork at the South Carolina State Library in Columbia in the near future. Limited space. To RSVP, email thompsonc@ dnr.sc.gov.
