Home/Current Exhibitions

Due to the dynamic nature of COVID-19, the dates and content of current and future exhibitions at RAM and RAM’s Wustum Museum may be required to change. Any updates to these exhibitions will be announced through regular channels, including website, email, and social media. If needed, participating artists will be contacted directly.

Presenting work from artists who create meaningful statements in craft media, RAM dispels any differentiation between fine art and craft and between the artist and the craftsperson. Exhibitions at RAM emphasize ideas behind the artwork, rather than following strict media categories.

All shows at RAM change two to three times each year. Exhibitions are currently being drawn almost exclusively from RAM’s extensive and dynamic collection.

Expect the Unexpected: Unusual Materials in Contemporary Craft

Expect the Unexpected features artworks drawn from RAM’s collection that incorporate unusual, surprising, or challenging materials.

Collection Focus: Mary Giles

This exhibition features work by Mary Giles—one of the most well-represented fiber artists in RAM's permanent collection—who made objects throughout her career that reflected her interest in materials and traditional basketmaking techniques.
