Opening weekend October 6-8.  Art will be on display until end of the year 2017

Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve is proud to host The Best of the Best 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, The Lewis & Clark, Corps of Discovery.  That show was followed by The Best of the Best 2015 which featured 8 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 8 outstanding artists including painters, Bill Anton, George Carlson, 
Len Chmiel, T. Allen Lawson, Dean Mitchell and Andrew Peters along with sculptors, Tim Cherry and Steve Kestrel. 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 6th on the Woolaroc Ranch grounds along with a brunch to be held on Sunday, October 8 at a private residence.
