The Racine Art Guild Juried Competitions are organized to demonstrate the creativity of the members of this group of practicing artists. Artworks selected for this show display an understanding of art techniques and presentation.
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.
Cultural Reflections: RAM Community Art Show—developed in collaboration with the Black Arts Council of Racine—showcases work by 86 artists that used a wide variety of media to explore aspects of their culture, heritage, family traditions, or way of life. Through paintings, prints, collage, objects, and more, these artists share their inspirations, influences, and observations about the world connected to them.
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.
This exhibition at RAM features works made from a variety of materials that address the ambiguous connection between reality and imagination.
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.
This exhibition, with works drawn from RAM’s collection, features contemporary interpretations of trompe l’oeil (fool or deceive the eye) technique.
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.
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.
