Woolaroc Museum and Wildlife Preserve is proud to announce its upcoming art exhibition, The Woolaroc Retrospective Exhibit & Sale, opening October 16, 2021, and continuing through December 31, 2021. According to Woolaroc CEO, Bob Fraser and Committee Chair, Dean Zervas, this show is a result of the great success that Woolaroc enjoyed with its first national show in 2013, Lewis & Clark Corps of Discovery. That show was followed by The Best of the Best Contemporary Wildlife Art Retrospective Exhibit and Sale in 2015, which featured seven wildlife artists, and The Best of the Best Retrospective Exhibit and Sale in 2017, which featured eight contemporary painters and sculptors, and The Woolaroc Retrospective Exhibit & Sale in 2019, which also featured 8 world-renown artists. “The reaction from the general public from our past exhibits and sales has been tremendous, and is why our committee has been hard at work to make our 2021 show the best one yet,” said Zervas.
This year’s show will feature Bill Acheff, Scott L. Christensen, Josh Elliott, Sherrie McGraw, Paul Moore, John Moyers, Peregrine O’Gormley, Grant Redden, and Matt Smith, all of whom are nationally recognized for their work. “We are thrilled to showcase the works of these 9 talented artists and further establish Woolaroc as a world-class museum,” said Fraser, Woolaroc CEO.
