Wild West Art Show
Excitement is growing and plans are underway for the grandest ever Wild West Art Show as our local St Paul community prepares for its 80th annual St Paul Rodeo and Independence Day celebration. We look forward to this special year and are planning to celebrate the color and excitement of the occasion with a wonderful presentation of music, art, and finely crafted items that document the times and tales of the West and the folks that live and work here.
We plan to have artists presenting works in a variety of mediums including acrylics, watercolors, graphite, oils, photography, leather, silver and other metals, antlers, and beads providing something for everyone and, perhaps, sparking your interest in something new.
Join us! As patrons, plan on stopping by the art tent during the rodeo to meet our talented artists and enjoy their work.

2014 Charm - Ricarda's Bright-cut - $100.00
Ricarda McCleary Clause, master silversmith, created our 2014 sterling silver St Paul Rodeo charm and is the last issue of this seven piece set of limited edition commemorative charms.
Ricarda is a self-taught artist who began developing artistic talents as a child when she learned to weld and work metal on her family's Nevada ranch. She moved on to study and hone her skills as a bright-cut engraving artist at the well known Miller Bit & Spur School in Nampa, Idaho as well as at the basic + advanced gun engraving school in Susanville, California.
Ricarda's unique artistry places her among the West's most respected artists. We are very lucky indeed to have Ricarda's exceptional silverwork on our 2014 charm.
