Current Exhibitions

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.


Fool the Eye: Addressing Illusion in Contemporary Art

This exhibition, with works drawn from RAM’s collection, features contemporary interpretations of trompe l’oeil (fool or deceive the eye) technique.

Precedents: Past Meets Present in Contemporary Glass and Clay

Precedents offers new contexts for understanding how motifs resurface regularly through generations, how much variety is possible within the dynamic of a certain material and relative size, and how artists might look at each other’s work for inspiration.

RAM Showcase: Focus on Glass

This exhibition spotlights glass as an art medium but, more importantly, in some ways, calls attention to the work of contemporary artists of color from RAM’s collection. While neither of these two threads are unique ones at RAM, this is the first exhibition dedicated to featuring only artists of color working with this material.

RAM Showcase: Russell T. Gordon and James Tanner

This exhibition—part of the RAM Showcase series—highlights the work of artists Russell T. Gordon and James Tanner, both of whom were educators with significant positions in their respective universities. While both of their works have been shown at RAM before, this exhibition is an opportunity to share more about the artists—reflecting a few moments of intersection between them.

Quiet Elegance: The Jewelry of Eleanor Moty

Featuring over 35 works, including several from RAM’s holdings as well as recently finished pieces, this exhibition owes its name to a recently-published monograph on the artist Eleanor Moty. It follows a similar arc to the book in representing Moty’s working career to-date—over 50 years of making.

In addition, as part of the archival supporting materials, RAM has been gifted textile works by other artists that served as inspiration for Darwall—several of which are included in this exhibition—and ephemera that documents his career.
