2016 RAM Artist Fellowship Winners

The RAM Artist Fellowship Program aims to showcase the diversity and vitality of the Racine/Kenosha visual arts community by supporting the professional development of its artists. The third biennial exhibition features the work of the following artists:

Tim Abel, Kenosha

Martin Antaramian, Kenosha

Kirsten Bartel, Racine

Lisa Bigalke, Kenosha

Each of these four artists will be awarded $2,500, which may be used for any expenses that will assist in the development of new work and advance their artistic careers, such as equipment and supply purchases, studio rental, and travel.

Concurrent solo featuring each recipient’s work will be presented at RAM’s Wustum Museum of Fine Arts, August 25 through November 25, 2017. A color brochure will accompany this fellowship show. By increasing critical attention and exposure for recipients, the program fosters their continued creative and professional development.

The RAM Artist Fellowship application process will be repeated in 2017, with the next entry deadline in January 2018.
