The National Duck Stamp Collectors Society (NDSC) is slated to fly into New York City next week for the highly anticipated World Stamp Show.
According to NDSC representatives, both the federal and junior duck stamp art exhibits will be present at the show, which runs from May 28-June 4 at Manhattans’ Javits Center.
“This is the first time that these beautiful pieces of original artwork have been exhibited at a philatelic event,” said NDSC Vice-President Dave Goyer. “It’s a great opportunity to view these paintings up close.”
The NDSC will be manning Booth No. 781 throughout the weeklong event. On May 29, NDSC President Ira Cotton will host a duck stamp presentation at 1 p.m.; it will be followed by an NDSC general meeting at 2 p.m. Both meetings will take place in Meeting Room 1E15.
“Both of these are open to all and are a perfect opportunity to meet in person and chat about our great hobby and common interests,” said Goyer. “We would love to see as many members, guests, and newcomers as possible.”
U.S. Duck Stamp Art Exhibit Tour
The show’s U.S. Federal Duck Stamp Art Exhibit will feature upwards of 25 pieces of original art chosen as the top entries in the recent Federal Duck Stamp art contest sponsored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The exhibit also includes a Junior Duck Stamp Art Tour, with more than 50 pieces of waterfowl artwork created by young artists participating in the annual Junior Duck Stamp art contest.
The NDSC was founded in March 1992. For more information, visit ndscs.org.
