RAM Artist Fellowship Exhibition 2017
Opening at RAMâ€™s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts on August 18, the RAM Artist Fellowship Exhibition 2017 showcases the diversity and vitality of the Racine/Kenosha visual arts community. This exhibition is a series of solo shows featuring the work of four area artists who were recipients of RAM Artist Fellowships in 2016â€”Tim Abel, Martin Antaramian, Kirsten Bartel, and Lisa Bigalkeâ€”representing a diverse range of styles and media. The show continues through November 25, 2017.
Sponsored by a grant from the
Osborne and Scekic Family Foundation, the biennial Racine Art Museum
fellowships provide support for the professional development of the communityâ€™s
artists. Additionally, the program distinguishes the region as a place that
values the arts and enhances the areaâ€™s desirability as a place for artists to
work and live.
Comprised of work newly created since the fellowship period began in January 2016â€”as well as work already in existenceâ€”this exhibition offers a sampling of the dynamic visual arts scene in this corner of southeastern Wisconsin.
