-Jim Morgan of Mendon, Cache County, has become the first Utahn to win the State Wildlife Resources Division's annual waterfowl stamp painting competition. His painting of Canada geese landing on a Utah marsh was the top choice out of 60 entrants. Leon Parsons of Rexburg, Idaho, was runner-up. Parsons was winner of the state's first waterfowl stamp competition in 1986.
A limited number of prints of Morgan's winning painting will be sold for about $140 each. And the painting will also be reproduced on the state's 1989 waterfowl stamp. Utahns must purchase the stamp for $3.30 to hunt ducks, geese and other waterfowl. Up to 40,000 of the stamps are sold each year to hunters and stamp collectors.-Marble House Gallery is featuring paintings of historical facades and country views in "Utah Townscapes 1989." These oils and watercolors have been painted by Utah artists. Gallery owner Dolores Kohler would enjoy taking visitors on a vicarious trip across Utah via these outstanding artworks. The show continues through April 28 at the Marble House Gallery, 44 Exchange Place, downtown Salt Lake City. For details, call 432-7332 or 295-7400.
