about the slo poke Art Show

The SLOPOKE Western Art Rodeo is a museum-quality fine art show. It is  different  than the usual commercial art show or the fund raiser for another organization because it is an art event for artists that places the highest premium on quality.  


Established in 2011, SLOPOKE got its unique name from SLO (for San Luis Obispo County, California) POKE (think: cowpoke) Western Art (obvious) and Rodeo (Spanish for an exhibition of skills). Today, the format also includes contemporary Art of the West; high quality representational and abstract art so we have dropped "rodeo"bit; beside people expected horses and cows! For seven successful years, the SLOPOKE has defied a challenging economic climate. In 2015, the 5th year, the Buffalo Head Nickel was our icon for the 5th anniversary show. In 2016, we reorganized as Enterprise, LLC - an entrepreneurial art enterprise so that we could better serve the art market in both retail representation (Seaside Gallery), public art events (SLOPOKE Events, and Artist Services (Digimagination). It is our objective to replace the Peppertree Art Show, which was very popular with artists and collectors alike. Sponsored by Irma and Bob Eubanks, and then their son Trace Eubanks, the show has been gone for 10 years now. The Peppertree Art Show left mighty big boots to fill, but we have adopted a somewhat different format and presentation, so we believe that our art event, now branded as SLOPOKE will be a worthy successor. Art collectors continue to be drawn to the museum-quality presentation of renowned artists to enjoy buying excellent art.
