Special Announcement: Lynn Branson Recognized As Living Legend
Friday, April 26, 2019 from 5:30-8 pm at the Grand Hotel in Ocean City, MD
The Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art, Salisbury, Maryland will recognize artist Lynn Branson with its 2019 Living Legend Award.
As an Interpretive Sculptor of wood, Lynn Branson finds inspiration in the line, form and shape discovered in each treasured piece of her chosen medium. The forms and shapes she develops as sculpture portray the living creatures of the Natural World, a World she feels a deep commitment to. Ms. Branson developed a passion for wood very early on in her life. Her first studio was a converted chicken house with straw walls. Living on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, the Ocean, forest and Alpine areas are close at hand. The habitat for wildlife is devastatingly beautiful and to Ms. Branson, fragile and vulnerable. Conveying this beauty is a main objective in her art.
Ms. Branson has exhibited internationally, earning her many awards. In 2010, she won Best in World Interpretive at the Ward World Championship with "Phantom of the Forest." Ms. Branson went on to win Best in World Interpretive again, in 2012, 2013 and 2017. Ms. Branson received the honor of 3rd in World Interpretive in 2014, 2015 and 2018. Lynn remains the only female to hold the title of Ward World Champion.
