2018 Waterfowl Festival Announces Featured Art Piece

We are pleased to unveil the 2018 Featured Art Piece, a sculpture titled “The Lovers”, an elegant, impressionistic bronze created by renowned artist Eric Tardif of Canada.

Tardif, who hails from Gatineau, Quebec, was previously a naturalist in Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area preserve along the shores of the St. Lawrence River. However, his inspiration for this piece started nine years ago in Florida, when he and his family watched in fascination as two birds enacted their courtship ritual. “It was so intense – their focus, their wing movements; it is etched in my memory,” he recounts with a bit of awe.
