Continuing a yearly tradition, the Riverside Art Museum is pleased to announce the opening of the 2013 Members’ Exhibition: The Persistence of Memory. This annual exhibit puts RAM’s abundant and talented artist-member demographic front and center with the opportunity to display and sell an original piece of their choice in accordance with the presiding theme. The exhibition is open to all media and attracts a wide range of artists, from emerging to the well established. Artists are welcome to interpret the theme of The Persistence of Memory however they choose and are also permitted to submit an accompanying artist's statement and short biography.
A panel of judges from the local art community will award: three Honorable Mentions, a Curatorial Award (selected by RAM curatorial staff), and a Best of Show award. All award winners will enjoy the opportunity to mount an exhibit feature in RAM’s auxiliary exhibition spaces or in the satellite gallery in the Walter’s Automotive Showroom over the course of 2014. Nearly all artwork submissions are available for purchase.
