2019 – Bigger and Better than Ever
2019 will bring some exciting changes to the Western Art Rodeo Association. We have grown a lot over the past year. We’ve learned that some things work well and others don’t work so well. Our goal is to build the best western artists association in the world and showcase the world’s best western art (in the most exciting format!). Change is necessary for growth and improvement in anything. We realize that the WARA is no exception to this.
2019 will be bigger, better and more exciting than ever for our members.
Entries to the 2019 New Year Classic will open in January of 2019. More information to follow very soon!
Thank you for your support of the Western Art Rodeo Association!
