His work was juried into "Birds in Art" at the Woodson Art Museum in Wausau WI, and his bronze long-billed curlew sculpture "Composed" was purchased for the museum permanent collection. "Composed" was one of sixty works chosen to go on the 35th Birds in Art Tour to: the Museum of the Gulf Coast in Port Arthur Texas; the Newington-Cropsey Foundation in Hastings-on-
