Hey guys, I seem to remember a while back someone asking for art contributions? Is this still a thing? I had some surgery done a week ago and I'm looking at about a month off work. So far, Ive spent everyday painting, and NANFA popped into my head. If you guys still need some work done, and know what you want, and how many, I've got the time to do it.

Yes sir it is definitely a thing.  Native fish art always does well in the auction.  If you could do a few of your local fishes or of fishes form the convention site (this year in MO link) I am sure it would be an excellent addition.  Even better if you can come on down in June and bring them yourself... cant be too far for you?

Are you referring to an auction at the annual convention? I surely won't be able to make it (four kids, two under 2) this year, but what I was really referring to was, if I remember correctly, either art for the periodical or for a calendar? That's why I was asking about what we were looking for exactly. Not that I'm not up for auctioning off pieces and making some money...

Yes, I was talking about the annual convention auction. I was assuming that you were talking about donating the artwork for NANFA to then auction.

Really sorry that you won't make it to the convention, but I totally understand family commitments, and respect you putting them first.

I will let Olaf answer for the other, but I am sure he always wants content.

Look up Joe Tomelleri and Emily Damstra on the internet. And Dave Neely. Then look up Isaac Szabo and Derek Wheaton. Then look up Freshwater Illustrated. These people are all doing great native fish art.

We are always open to submissions for publication in American Currents. (No carp, though!) If you do something you'd like us to consider, please share it with me via a message on this site or email (my user name @moxostoma.com). We generally have photos only, but that's just because no one is submitting drawings or paintings. Go for it!

I've always loved Mark Sussino's and Al Agnew's work as well.  Beautiful stuff.
