Sponsored by a grant from the Osborne and Scekic Family Foundation, the RAM Artist Fellowship Program showcases the diversity and vitality of the Racine/Kenosha visual arts. By increasing critical attention and exposure for recipients, the program fosters their continued creative professional development. As part of the program, an Emerging Artist Award is given to an artist under the age of 40 who is in the early stages of their creative development and demonstrates significant potential.

The sixth biennial exhibition at RAM’s Wustum Museum features the work of the following artists: Peter F. Aymonin, Lisa Bigalke, Maureen Fritchen, Jojin Van Winkle, and Kelly Witte.

The five award recipients were chosen based how well their work will present together as a group, as well as individually. Jurors consider the merits of each artist’s work but also look at other variables, not limited to but including county of residence, gender, type of work represented within the group, experience, heritage, and length of career. Each exhibition award cycle deliberately focuses on a group that represents a wide range of artistic accomplishments and types of careers.

The exhibition runs August 23 – November 25, 2023.
