Welcome to the Western Art Rodeo Association

The Western Art Rodeo Association provides Western Artists the opportunity to compete for prize money and status recognition in events called Western Art Rodeos. All artwork is judged and scored on the principles of fine art. Anyone is welcomed and encouraged to join and compete, regardless of skill level, age, gender or advertising dollars. The highest quality art rises to the top, without prejudice.  It is the WARA’s mission to provide new opportunities for Western Artists, while educating the public on the fundamental principles of fine art and encouraging youth to get involved in art programs by providing opportunities for all artists.
