Al competed in the first Western Art Rodeo on April 29th and 30th. The event was held at the Sundance resort in Utah. The Western Art Rodeo Association is a brand new idea in the art world. Here is an excerpt from their website.
There’s a new game in town for Artists – Sculptors – Painters – Photographers and Art Enthusiasts!
Introducing the Western Art Rodeo Association.No, it’s nothing to do with bucking horses or bulls.
It’s a brand new opportunity for artists to make more money, gain exposure, get sponsors, earn name recognition, get in front of collectors – without selling any of their art!
Of course, once you see how it works – they will sell their art too! (making even more money)
The WARA will put an end to the STARVING ARTIST.
Quality Artwork will rise to the top based on quality and not advertising dollars.
If you’re an artists, sculptor, photographer, painter, collector, or just an art enthusiasts – you owe it to yourself to check out the world’s first ART SPORT – WARA.

The concept for the Art Rodeo is based on an actual rodeo. Artists can enter up to 3 pieces to be judged in 3 different rounds. There are 3 judges, and each judge can score up to 33 points per piece in each round. So each piece of artwork can score a total of 99 points. The judging is done live and the audience can watch and see how each piece scores. The 4 highest scoring pieces move onto the next round, where the artist has to enter another piece. The final round has the highest scoring artwork competing.
Al entered “Listen” into round one where he scored an 86 and took second place in sculpture.
In round two he entered “The Storyteller”. That piece scored 60 and was in seventh place.
Al took 3rd place overall for sculpture.
The WARA is a new exciting idea that every artist should participate in. It’s an art show with a purpose. The next show is scheduled for November, we’ll be there, will you?
