Mark Twain Noe
More on Mark Twain Noe: Mark Twain Noe was commissioned by The First National Bank (Tower Bank) in 1980 to paint a collection of local historic scenes called the “Gallery of History.” Noe’s interest in wildlife and history has been rewarded through painting being selected in the ’87 National Arts for the Parks; in ’89 selected as Artist of the Year by the National Wild Turkey Federation; in ’92 by the National Wild turkey Federation; and in ’92 by the New York State Duck’s Unlimited.
Noe passed in early 2012, but his legacy lives on in these beautiful prints.
Melissa Gayman Ball (Missy Ball)
More on Melissa Gayman Ball: Melissa Ball is a Pennsylvania artist who is especially noted for her unique and highly detailed artwork on turkey tail feathers. In addition to painting on feathers, Melissa is also a print artist. Her focus on the wild turkey has led her to a long standing relationship with the National Wild Turkey Federation. Melissa won the NWTF’s Grand National Art Contest in 2001, and has since had a painting featured in their national core package nine times. During that time, Melissa was named the NWTF’s Featured Artist of the Year in 2003, and Stamp Print Artist in 2005. Look for her unique piece, titled “Last Call”, at your local NWTF Hunting Heritage Banquet. -Sampled from her website: www.turkeytails.com
