The Delaware River Shad Fisherman’s Association Fund Raising Banquet

February 1, 2014

I recently had the great fortune to display my work at this year’s Delaware River Shad Fisherman’s Association Fund Raising Banquet.  Special thanks to the club president, Charlie Furst for reaching out to me with this event in mind and extra special thanks to my brother Nathan Gelesh for all his help with making my attendance possible.  With a broken leg, getting ready and setting up my art for display would have been impossible with out his help. 

To help out with fund raising, I donated one of my limited edition American Shad prints to be auctioned off to raise money for the club.  In addition, fifty percent of all sales from my shad prints sold at the banquet were donated as well.  Always glad to lend a hand to an orginization commited to doing good both in the community and in the natural world.  For more information, please visit their website @

Here I am chatting with an interested attendee.

I ended up having a wonderful time, put some faces to names, and made some new friends.  The food was great and the talks, interesting and informative.  Certainly hope to return next year for more of the same.


Thanks for taking a look,

Bart Gelesh
