FRANKFORT (AP) - The Kentucky National Wildlife Art Exhibit opens this fall in Henderson, and officials are asking artists to submit entries.
The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources says more than $10,000 in awards will be presented.

Artists may submit works depicting birds, mammals, reptiles and aquatic life native to the U.S. in multimedia, oil, acrylic, graphite, bronze sculpture, woodcarving, pastel, serigraph and watercolor.
The submission deadline is July 27. For a prospectus, visit www.ohiovalleyart.org. For more information, contact Jule McClellan, the art league's executive director and curator, at (270) 860-1930 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
