Opening Reception & Award presentations:
Sunday, April 8, 1:30-4pm.
Jurying of 84 diverse pieces of art created by 48 RAG members for our annual show took place on Monday, March 19. Juror Lisa Bigalke spent hours carefully studying all the entrants and making her choices. She was impressed with the quality of the work and said it was hard to eliminate any. She found selecting award winners especially difficult so in addition to the five monetary awards, First- $150, Second - $100, Third - $50
Awards of Merit - $25, she chose another three for Honorable Mention.
The final count is 54 works by 41 artists, and it looks like it will be a good show. At the time of this writing, Candace Hoffman, RAG member and Anderson Curator, was working her magic to hang a beautiful and cohesive exhibit. As in the past, our show is in the two large rooms on the first floor
On the second floor, four award winners from the Anderson Winter show have solo exhibits, including new RAG member, Dan Simoneau. Another RAG member, Lance Raichert, who was the winter juror, also has a solo show. Be sure to check them out.
Please join the RAG community on Sunday, April 8, 1:30-4, for the opening reception. Friends and family welcome. The Anderson Arts Center is located at 6603 Third Ave, Kenosha. Award presentations will take place at about 2:30.

Whistler’s Mother: An American Icon Returns to Chicago
In March, James McNeill Whistler’s masterpiece returns to Chicago from Paris for the first time in over 60 years. The fame of this iconic work is considered in a focused installation of approximately 25 objects, including small- and large-format paintings, prints, drawings, posters, and other ephemera. The presentation also explores Whistler’s use of family members as subjects, his abstract treatment of conventional genres such as portraiture and landscape, and the arc of his professional ambition. The return of “Whistler’s Mother” to the Art Institute of Chicago is especially meaningful given the museum’s deep holdings of Whistler’s paintings, prints, and drawings. Championed by the museum during his lifetime, Whistler is one of the 19th-century artists whose work lies at the core of the Art Institute’s collection.
Saints and Heroes: Art of Medieval and Renaissance Europe
Step back in time and immerse yourself in the spiritual, domestic, and chivalric worlds of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. This spring, the Art Institute unveils the new Deering Family Galleries of Medieval and Renaissance Art, Arms, and Armor, presenting nearly 700 objects from the museum’s rich holdings of art from 1200 to 1600: monumental altarpieces, exquisite jewelry, and the beloved arms and armor collection.
Our annual juried exhibition will be at the Anderson Arts Center. Members, whose 2017 dues have been paid, may enter two pieces in any medium. Drop off will take place Sunday, March 19. The opening reception is Sunday, April 9, and the show will hang until May 21. The juror this year is Amy Cropper, Associate Professor of Art at Carroll University. You may remember that she conducted our member critique in March of 2016.
There is a $10.00 per artist entry fee.
More information to come.
