Artist Sandy Scott's "Rodeo Suite" captures the beauty and athleticism of rodeo livestock and competitors.

Sandy Scott (b. 1943) trained at the Kansas City Art Institute. She became a master etcher and printmaker, creating wildlife and sporting scenes that have won numerous awards. In 1977 she received a commission from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame to create a series of etchings depicting the principal events of professional rodeo. She spent the summer creating the works, relying on her father’s knowledge of rodeo to inform each piece. Scott had grown up on a horse ranch in Oklahoma, and her family counted many rodeo competitors as close friends. The resulting "Rodeo Suite" included six hand-pulled prints on French hand-laid paper in a limited edition of 100 sets. These prints were the first set made.
