Calling All Area Artists: HSNEI is seeking artists in Winneshiek, Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette and Howard Counties interested in decorating a fiberglass animal statue to be auctioned at our Fall 2015 fundraiser “Tails and Treasures”. The statues will be provided to the artists by HSNEI and can be viewed here.

Anyone interested in decorating a statue can email or call Pat Brockett at 563-277-1054 by January 30. An application packet will then be mailed out requesting which statue the artist wants to decorate and how they would decorate it. The deadline for returning this to HSNEI is February 26. Those artists whose designs are selected will be notified after that date.
