For our RAM Annual Invitational this year, amidst the chaos, isolation, and shifting perspectives, the Fort Smith Regional Art Museum desires to focus on renewal and new beginnings. The theme for this year’s Annual Invitational is Metamorphosis. When the word metamorphosis is used, concepts of renewal, rebirth, and change often come to mind. These definitions carry heavy symbolic weight as many individuals and communities have gone through significant changes over the past two years. This year’s invitational invited artists in all genres to submit work evocative of renewal, rebirth, beginnings, endings, and individualistic approaches to what metamorphosis means to them.

The RAM Annual Invitational is a national competitive exhibition that has been hosted by RAM since 1948. The purpose of this exhibition is to encourage and recognize professional artists and to foster art appreciation in the community. All works will be for sale. All proceeds will benefit RAM’s exhibitions, educational programming, and the participating artists.

Be sure to come and see this exhibition in person so you can cast your vote for People’s Choice Winner!
