Gloria A. Chadwick

AFC Conservation Artist of the Month for January, 2013

Gloria Chadwick, like most members of AFC is devoted to making a contribution to the AFC mission of using her artwork to support nature. Twenty percent of her sales are contributed to an established organization which support conservation efforts of an animal species.

Among the activities she has been involved in include 2011 workshops for children to assist them to enter the 2012 Jr. Duck Stamp competition and in the process learn about the wetlands. In El Cajon City Library Wildlife Exhibition she was featured artist for a one month display of 30 oil paintings of wildlife from Africa, North America and Asia. Each painting supplied with some interesting statistics or traits about each animal. Emphasis on man's ability to make a difference in the outcome of wildlife. Another activity involved Starbucks and the San Diego Zoo who held an art competition to produce a tumbler and debit card to raise awareness and financial support for endangered species. Gloria's flamingo design was chosen over several hundred entries and was a rapidly sold out limited edition.

Gloria has been juried into many shows, large and small, won a number awards. "I believe artists play an enormous role is driving home the message about the beauty around us. My goal is to educate the public to the greater value of wildlife and to encourage them to support those organizations that endeavor to protect all species and environments. I paint because I want to share my enthusiasm of nature and I've learned that most people will stop and take a longer look if the artist provides some interesting facts about the subject. I hope I can do some good by educating others about the greatest asset (wildlife) they have around them and to look and listen a little differently."

She is a member of ACES (Animal Center for Education and Services) a local organization to work with public about animal care. Visit Gloria's AFC web site to learn more.
