Wild Wings and Mill Creek Studios Announce Partnership


Mill Creek Sculptures

Lake City, MN—Two of America’s most recognized names in wildlife art have joined forces to create the largest and most comprehensive collection of nature-inspired two and three-dimensional art products ever assembled.  Wild Wings, which this year celebrates its 46th anniversary as America’s leading wildlife and nature art print publisher, has assumed all manufacturing, sales and distribution functions for Mill Creek Studios, today’s leading producer of wildlife, Western and Native American sculptural art products.  The new partnership will offer collectors a convenient single-source for today’s finest nature-inspired art for both wall and tabletop home décor.     

Mill Creek Studios was founded 25 years ago by Stephen Herrero, who began reproducing his original wood, stone and clay sculptures to satisfy the ever-growing demand for his work.  Now representing six uniquely talented sculptors offering a wide diversity of styles, the company designs a full-range of traditional, bronze-effused, and contemporary wildlife, Western and Native American sculpture.  More than seventy Mill Creek Studios designs are immediately available with many more to be introduced in January 2015 and beyond.

Wild Wings was founded in 1968, inspired by a deep love for the outdoor lifestyle and a desire to produce the highest-quality nature-themed art prints available.  Now representing more than forty of North America’s most talented and diverse wildlife, nature and Americana painters, Wild Wings has a long history of providing quality products and top-notch customer service. In addition to the newly launched Mill Creek Studios products, Wild Wings also produces a wide range of art, gift and home décor products under the Terry Redlin, Great Northern Art, Nature’s Window, Bouquet & Company, and Wild Wings brands.

Framed Duck Migration Maps Ducks Unlimited Releases Milestone Waterfowl Migration Maps

Wildlife Artist

Lake City, MN—Wild Wings artist David A. Maass and former Ducks Unlimited Chief Biologist, Dr. Bruce Batt, PhD, both internationally acclaimed in their fields, have combined their knowledge and skill to produce a striking set of waterfowl migration maps of North America. The signed and numbered edition of 5,000 will be sold at Ducks Unlimited fundraising events throughout 2009-2010. The map set is an updated and reworked version of the landmark edition produced by artist Richard Bishop with Joseph Mims in the mid-1930s. Just as important, the new version shows current survey information for ducks and geese, some of which has changed over the last 70 years, according to Batt.

“For the first time,” noted Maass, “I have been afforded the opportunity to paint every species of waterfowl that is native to North America. Working on this challenging project with the renowned biologist, Dr. Bruce Batt, has been one of the highlights of my career.”

The two-map set features all of the currently known waterfowl in North America. They are entitled Surface Feeding Ducks, Swans and Geese of North America and Diving and Sea Ducks of North America. The strikingly beautiful maps are signed by both Maass and Batt and feature Maass’ incomparable waterfowl art as well as knowledgeable descriptive narrative by Dr. Batt.

Framed maps may be purchased singly or as a set at the popular Ducks Unlimited banquet auctions. If interested, contact your Ducks Unlimited chapter to make sure the map set will be offered or visit the Ducks Unlimited
web site, ducks.org, to find a banquet scheduled in your area.
