A Celebration of California’s Nature and Agriculture

Artists are invited to donate art to be featured in the
Silent Auction Art Exhibit.
Yolo Basin Foundation’s 27th annual Bucks for Ducks fundraising gala takes place on October 20. It will feature both a fine arts exhibit and a juried photography exhibit. The purpose of these shows is to raise money for the Foundation’s wetlands education programs.
Exhibit Theme: For the first time the art can be inspired by nature and agriculture in all of California! Images on this page are art pieces featured in previous Bucks for Ducks exhibits.
Type of art: All media (i.e. paint, ink, ceramic, mosaic, glass, collage). No photographs please. There is a separate call for entries for the event’s juried photography show.
Size/Dimensions: New sizes accepted this year! 8″ tall x 8″ wide ranging up to 8″ tall x 15″ maximum width. Artists may submit up to two pieces of art.
Format: The art work should be a format for hanging on a wall. Blocks of birch wood 8” by 8″ square, 8″ tall by 10″ wide, 8″ tall by 12″ wide and 8″ tall x 15″ wide are available for artists in the Yolo Basin Foundation office. See photo below.
