FSRAM Press Release
“Our mission centers on fostering art appreciation in our community,” commented Louis Meluso, RAM’s Executive Director. “We strive to achieve this goal through diverse exhibitions, and our Annual Invitational never fails to deliver.”
The RAM Annual Invitationals are open and often edgy and thought provoking. This year’s Exploring Mindscapes: An Artist’s Reflection calls to light the imposed isolation experienced during this pandemic which has forced many to look within their personal perceptions and familiarities. This current theme evokes the concept of self-reflection in diverse media and subject matter as to include all artistic expression.
RAM wants each artist to reflect on their own undercurrent through visual expression be it installation-based work, painting, sculpture, photographic, ceramic, video or any other medium which invites others to explore inside the landscape of the creative mind.
The deadline for submissions is November 13th, please see our website fsram.org for the particulars. The exhibition will run from Friday, January 8th through Sunday May 16, 2021. Cash prizes and the RAM purchase award will be announced opening night January 8th. Plus, the People’s Choice Award will be based on votes collected throughout the course of the exhibition, the winner announced on social media when the exhibition closes.
The first-place winner will be awarded $1,000 and a solo show in 2022 at the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum!
