Throughout his prolific career, Ned Smith enjoyed a collaborative relationship with the Pennsylvania Game Commission. He worked as a staff illustrator for the agency, creating over 120 cover paintings for Pennsylvania Game News magazine. Ned also produced several of the Game Commission’s “Working Together for Wildlife” prints, including the classic “Dutch Country Bluebirds. The Center’s current exhibit, Gone for the Day: Ned Smith and the Pennsylvania Game Commission celebrates the legendary partnership between Ned Smith and the PGC.
This exhibit pairs Ned’s Original works with their finished covers. It also features many artifacts, posters and fliers from the Pennsylvania Game Commission as well. This exhibit is truly a blend of Ned, his work and the Pennsylvania Game Commission.
It will be on exhibit in the Olewine Gallery through most of December 2018.
