Artist of the Year
A prolific and talented artist, Hayden Lambson’s original art is sought after by collectors throughout North America. His work has been featured in art and outdoor magazines such as Art West, Hunters’ Quest, Wildlife Art News, and Cabela’s. Hayden has generously donated his work to raise thousands of dollars each year for conservation groups, including the Mzuri Wildlife Foundation.
Hayden’s latest and most ambitions project was “BAREBOW; An Archer’s Fair-chase Taking of North America’s Big Game 29” for which he was commissioned to do all 29 species of North American Big Game. 14 of the 29 images were taken from previous work and 15 images were painted exclusively for the book (16 counting the cover). Each of the 29 chapters of the book begins with a color illustration by Hayden and each chapter contains several of his son, Dallen’s black and white sketches. The painting that he has donated to MZURI is the polar bear painting found in the polar bear chapter of the book. The donation also includes a copy of the book for which the painting was commissioned.
