The Ellensburg Rodeo Top Hands Association is proud to present the third annual Ellensburg Rodeo Commemorative Bronze. Top Hands members began the Commemorative Bronze Series in 2003, and have captured Ellensburg Rodeo history as a new means of fundraising to further assist in the production of the Ellensburg Rodeo.
These remarkable pieces of western art are created each year from a photograph of an event from previous years at the Ellensburg Rodeo, taken by Ellensburg Photographer Molly Morrow. Once Top Hands members carefully select a photograph, it is forwarded to the bronze artist. The selected bronze artist is Kristi Usher of St. Helens, Oregon.
Each year, the Top Hands will commission a limited edition series of 23 Bronzes cast, representing the establishment year of the Ellensburg Rodeo, 1923. The individual bronzes are numbered 1 through 23 and are sold with or with out the graphically designed print of the photograph. The commemorative print is framed in a rustic barn wood, and designed by Ellensburg graphic design artist Andrea Pascoe. Out of the 100 prints available, the first 23 will be reserved for the purchasers of the bronze.
Please follow links above to view the commenorative bonzes and prints. All the bronzes and prints are on display at the Rodeo Ticket Office. There are also unframed prints available for $40.00 each.
All prices are subject to change – please contact the Ellensburg Rodeo Office for current pricing.
