Honoring Fifty Years of Watercolor Wisconsin

October 16, 2016 – February 5, 2017

In 2016, RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts turns 75 and Wustum’s longest running exhibition, Watercolor Wisconsin, turns 50. Watercolor Wisconsin was inaugurated in 1966 in response to a long-term and dedicated interest in this form of painting and has been presented every year since.

In honor of this milestone, RAM is honoring Watercolor Wisconsin—and Wustum’s commitment to supporting the medium and regional artists—with an exhibition of works purchased from the shows that became part of RAM’s permanent collection.

Artists in the Exhibition

Amy E. Arntson, Sarah Aslakson, Trenton Baylor, Dennis Bayuzick, Jerrold Belland, Richard Berns, Erwin Breithaupt, Nancy Elholm Burkert, Warrington Colescott, John N. Colt, Jean Crane, Doug DeVinny, Mary Diman, Elton Dorval, Patrick Doughman, Craig Ede, Lisa Englander, Carolyn Gagliardi, John Goray, William Greider, Sherman Groenke, Danelle Hanna-Schure, Harold E. Hansen, David V. Holmes, Robert Houck, Bruce Hustad, Elizabeth Ivers, Joel Jaecks, Robert Johansen, Aletha Jones, Edwin C. Kalke, Helen Klebesadel, Gregg A. Knoll, Linda Koenig, John S. Milella, Ruth Miles, Anne E. Miotke, Helen Napier, Lee O’Daniel, JoAnna Poehlmann, Lance Raichert, Lynne Railsback, Laurence Rathsack, Jamie Ross, Joseph Rozman, Ken Schneider, Susan M. Sorenson, Kitty Sturrock, Jean Thielen, Christel-Anthony Tucholke, Leslie Vansen, Lee Weiss, John Wickenberg, Harry Wirth, Peggy Flora Zalucha, and Scott Zupanc
