Steeped in duck hunting tradition and surrounded by some of the most famous waterfowl habitat on earth, Grisham’s Art is dedicated to the preservation and celebration of Arkansas wildlife. In 1961, Jonesboro businessman Larry Grisham opened his art gallery specializing in wildlife art and custom framing. “I’ve just had a lifelong love of hunting,” Grisham says. “I live to duck hunt and I go most every day of the season. This art gallery is my labor of love. As the publisher of the Arkansas Duck Stamp Program since 1982, Larry Grisham’s love of wildlife art has helped raise millions of dollars for the state hunters call, “Duck Capital of the World!” The stamps are required of every waterfowl hunter 16 and older and fund conservation projects for the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. Each year, Grisham commissions one of the nation’s most celebrated wildlife artists with a single, daunting task: capture on canvas, the beauty and drama of an authentic Arkansas duck hunt. Today, the Arkansas Duck Stamp Program is the nation’s largest and in 2004, the state recognized Grisham’s contributions by inducting him into the Arkansas Outdoor Hall of Fame. Even so, Grisham gives most of the credit to the talented artists who have contributed original artwork to the program.
