On Nashata Pond

This Artistic Cartography piece called "On Nashata Pond" has been done on an antique map that was first produced in 1849. It depicts the historic lands of the Minnesota Native Americans as well as the natural territory of the wolves within northern Minnesota. 

This piece, done entirely in graphite and artist marker, was done in partnership with the Voyagers Wolf Project. The Project is focused on understanding the summer ecology of wolves in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem. Specifically, the Project wishes to understand the predation behaviour and reproductive ecology of wolves during the summer.

The wolves depicted in the above piece are from the Cranberry Pack and are crossing Nashata Pond near the Nashata Point which juts out into Lake Kabetogama in the National Park. 



Back in 2021, I started to follow the Voyageurs Wolf Project on their Facebook Page to watch their trail cam footage. I have been interested in trail cams for some time now and to be able to watch the amount of varied wildlife that the Project's cameras pick up is truly amazing. Black Bear, Moose, deer, beaver, river otter, fox, bobcat and even the odd cougar ( mountain lion ) let alone the numerous videos of wolves. A wildlife artist's dream of trail cam videos. Follow their work on Facebook here.

My goal with "On Nashata Pond" is help raise awareness and the much needed funds that the Project requires to continue to conduct their research in northern Minnesota. With the sale of the original piece, 50% of the proceeds will go directly to the Project.

Further with this partnership is the International Wolf Center ( IWC ) in Ely, Minnesota who has agreed to sell Limited Edition Giclee prints with a further share of the profits going to the Voyageurs Wolf Project. The prints measure 23.5"H x 27"W.

Thoughtful and masterful work

Mr. Arnett combines my passion for wildlife conservation with unique and meaningful art. The artistic choices made in the recent piece “On Nashata Pond” is an especially powerful image—please read his explanation and history. Further icing on the cake is that a substantial amount of the proceeds are donated to an incredibly salient organization dedicated to research and conservation of the wolves of Voyageur. 10/10 would recommend.
