On December 8, 2019, Racine Art Museum’s (RAM’s) Charles A. Wustum Museum of Fine Arts continued a longstanding Racine tradition with the opening of Watercolor Wisconsin 2019. As one of the museum’s most popular annual shows, this exhibition brings together the works of artists from throughout the state. Limited only by their materials—aqueous media such as acrylic and watercolor—artists are free to create two-dimensional and three-dimensional works on paper. Featuring 106 pieces by 85 artists from communities in all corners of Wisconsin, this year’s show will be on display until April 18, 2020.
Over fifty years of Watercolor Wisconsin exhibitions have established RAM’s Wustum Museum as a center for watercolor activity in the Midwest. Encouraged to experiment and explore all the possibilities of painting on paper, the artists in the show have created works as diverse as their own imaginations. Online entry has continued to expand the diversity of cities represented.
Four new works from the 2019 competition have been purchased for RAM’s permanent collection, adding to the museum’s holdings of extraordinary Wisconsin artists.
