Racine and Vicinity Show 2017

June 2 – August 5, 2017

RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts continues a museum tradition with the opening of Racine and Vicinity Show: An All Media Juried Exhibition. A glimpse into local talent, this juried exhibition showcases work from artists residing throughout Racine, Kenosha, and Walworth counties, along with RAM members from outside the area.

Juror Susan Barnett selected the 93 works by 72 artists to be included, as well as the awards for this year’s exhibition. Of the 418 pieces submitted by 175 artists, less than one-quarter of them were chosen for this year’s exhibition. Barnett is an independent curator, writer, and photographer. Since 2003, she has directed the Cedarburg Cultural Center and helped bring the John Michael Kohler Arts Center’s Arts/Industry 40-year exhibition and publication to fruition. Recent projects include managing a large private collection and co-curating Wis.Con.Sin at the Portait Society Gallery in Milwaukee. Susan has curated more than 50 exhibitions and has served often as a juror, most recently for Forward 2016 at the Charles Allis Museum.
