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.

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.


Playful/Pensive: Contemporary Artists and Contemporary Issues

The artworks included in this exhibition are either playful or thought-provoking, and sometimes both—seeming lighthearted at first but ultimately speaking to deeper, more complex issues. Constructed of materials, such as ceramic and glass, that can withstand the demanding conditions of RAM’s Windows on Fifth gallery, these works reflect personal, social, and cultural issues and ideas in sometimes unexpected ways.

RAM Showcase: Objects

The unifying theme of this exhibition is that the works presented are objects—sculptural, functional, or both—made by artists from diverse backgrounds, all residing within the United States. Subject matter varies—from material exploration to personal narrative to function. While this work is not directly issue-oriented, the fact that the makers themselves, as artists of color, have experienced a wide range of implicit and explicit biases is a subcontext worthy of consideration. Seen through that lens, the story these objects tell is even more complex.

In the Round: Vessels and Sculpture from RAM’s Collection

In the Round showcases artwork that is best understood when contemplated from more than one angle—pieces whose stories and designs unfold as a viewer actively engages in exploring the whole thing.

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.
