Trout Sculpture unveiled at National Trout Center


Fri, Apr 19th, 2013
Posted in Preston Arts & Culture

During Minnesota’s Trout Opener, on April 13th, you may have noticed avid trout fly fisherman, Paul Lambrecht, out on the streams near Preston. However, at noon Lambrecht appeared at the National Trout Center in downtown Preston for the unveiling of his unique hand-carved trout sculpture which stands approximately 4’ long & 3’ high in size. A brief unveiling ceremony was held with light refreshments served afterward. Several local residents and outside visitors to the area participating in the trout opener were in attendance.

Local Lanesboro artist, Paul Lambrecht was a fiscal year 2012 recipient of an artist initiative grant from the MN State Arts Board. This activity was funded in part by the Minnesota State Legislature from the state’s Art and Cultural Heritage Fund with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4th, 2008.

Lambrecht has been carving full time for the past 33 years and has generously gifted his trout creation to the National Trout Center located at 120 St. Anthony Street, Preston, MN. The sculpture took Lambrecht five weeks to complete and is made from a variety of woods: bass, walnut, maple, butternut, cherry, and oak. The National Trout Center is proud to display this work of art for visitors to enjoy and admire.
