WARA Judges

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” We’ve all heard that old saying, and like most old sayings it contains truth. But not the whole truth. Centuries, millennia, of artistic creation have established standards, ideals, archetypes that define beauty. These principles are evident in masterpieces that have withstood the test of time, and they remain invaluable in defining and understanding the great art of today.

The Western Art Rodeo Association goes to great lengths to select judges who have studied and understand the timeless principles of beauty and use them to inform and enlighten the “eye of the beholder.” As a result, uniformed personal opinion plays no role in the WARA judging process. Rather, our judges apply abiding fundamentals to each work of art to determine placement in WARA competitions.  

Whether we are artists, enthusiasts, or collectors, we owe our judges a great debt of gratitude for sharing their time, knowledge, and expertise. They play an important role in the betterment of western art and art education through understanding and using the ageless, established principles of artistic beauty in judging WARA events.

If you have any questions, please feel to contact Jeff Wolf or Russ Larsen. We’d be happy to help you.
