Art at the Classic
Held during the Draft Horse Classic, which draws nearly 20,000 visitors to the Fairgrounds, Art at the Classic is an equine and western art show that features impressive works of art in a dozen categories and more than 100 works by painters, sculptors, photographers and other fine artists. The show has become one of the premier displays of its kind – attracting both art lovers and horse lovers. Artists are encouraged to participate by entering artwork in the show and purchasing booth space at the show.
Call for Artists
Are you interested in showcasing your artwork at Art at the Classic? The juried show is open to all artists over 18 years old whose work reflects a western way of life and includes any equine subject, work on the land, western landscape, animals or wildlife. Entries must be artist’s original design, produced in the last three years, and not previously shown in Art at the Classic. Classes include oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastel, pen and ink, graphic and charcoal, colored pencil, photography, sculpture, miniatures, and anything goes. New this year, we’ve added a “Western Lifestyle” class that includes furniture, horse gear, ironwork, leather craft and silver smithing. All artwork must be for sale.
Cash awards and ribbons will be given to First Place in each class and Best of Show. Ribbons will be awarded for Best Draft Horse Theme, Honorable Mention, and People’s Choice. The artist for the 2019 Draft Horse Classic poster will also be chosen from submitted artwork.
