What is a Western Art Rodeo?
The W.A.R.A. is a group of western artists, art enthusiasts and business professionals looking to revitalize the Western Art Industry by providing artists new innovated opportunities to get their work recognized by competing in Art Rodeos – The World’s First Art Sport.
This new concept provides and opportunity for everyone to experience artwork in a way that it has never been experienced before. This is a LIVE COMPETITION with a Rodeo Announcer, cheering audience and live scoring; just like a rodeo. It’s an amazing opportunity for artists because every artist is guaranteed Center Stage to tell about their artwork. It’s a fun, entertaining, exciting and educational event that is stirring interest in the Western Art Industry.
Our events are called Art Rodeos because of the format of the competition. At these Rodeos, artist will compete with their best completed artwork for prize money and awards. It’s set up in an “American Idol” format with three judges and a live audience. The art competitor brings their artwork onto the stage, a live rodeo announcer interviews the artist about themselves and their artwork, while the judges score the piece based on the principles of art. When the score is announced, the audience reacts with cheering (or even sometimes booing!). This allows art to rise to the top based solely on the principles of art, gives collectors confidence to purchase quality artwork and provides a fun, exciting way for the public to experience Western Art.
Don’t be surprised if a western art collector follows you back to your room and purchases your artwork!
