Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve announced today that they will be hosting “The Best of the Best 2017” Retrospective Exhibit and Sale from October 7, 2017, through December 31, 2017. According to Show Director Dean Zervas and Museum Director Shiloh Thurman, the upcoming show is a result of the great success that Woolaroc enjoyed from their first national show in 2013 featuring The Lewis & Clark, Corps of Discovery. That show was followed by “The Best of the Best 2015,” which featured eight outstanding wildlife artists.
“The reaction from the general public to both shows was overwhelming and is why we immediately set forth to present this show in 2017,” said Zervas.
This year’s show will feature eight outstanding artists including painters Bill Anton, George Carlson, Len Chmiel, T. Allen Lawson, Dean Mitchell and Andy Peters along with sculptors Tim Cherry and Steve Kestrell. A cocktail reception and sale of their work will be held on Saturday, October 7, in the museum. In addition, two artist presentations will be held in the Events Center at Woolaroc earlier in the day.
For sponsors of the show, an elegant artist and sponsor appreciation dinner will be held on Friday evening, October 6, on the Woolaroc ranch grounds. A brunch is planned for Sunday, October 8, at a private residence.
For more sponsor information or general information about the show, contact Shiloh Thurman or Kaci Fouts at 918-336-0307, ext. 37 or 30 or visit the Woolaroc website at www.woolaroc.org.
