Wildlife art show is world class

Posted: June 12, 2012 - 9:13am

On June 1, the "Alaska 2012: A Celebration of Wildlife Art" exhibit opened at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. This summer long exhibit is one of the biggest displays of wildlife art ever held, and it is right here in our City of Kenai. The exhibit features some of the most sought after and top-notch artists in the wildlife art world, and it truly breathtaking.

Many great people have been involved in putting this event together- with special recognition due to our curator Dr. David Wartinbee for all he has done over the past few years in organizing this world class show, the City of Kenai for their support, the Patrons of the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center for their assistance in putting this event together, and the staff of the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center for all their hard work. An event of this caliber is not put together overnight; with many involved having spent a great deal of time and energy to bring this show to Kenai for all to enjoy.

It is worth noting that nearly all of the artwork on display is for sale, with a portion of the proceeds going to the Kenai Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center to help put on future events and exhibits like this in our great City.

I would highly encourage people to visit the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center this summer, and bring your friends, family and visitors! You will not be disappointed.
