Upcoming events

Aug. 7, 2015 - July 24, 2016
Joan Backes: Falling Leaves and Painted Branches

Milwaukee-born artist Joan Backes is acutely aware of her natural surroundings. She applies her focused attention to detail and sensitivity to materials to the study of trees, both in part and in whole. This exhibition marries the natural color, shape, and pattern of leaves and branches with human interference as Backes arranges found leaves and branches into graceful and compelling vignettes for RAM’s Windows on 5th Gallery. An admission fee of $5 for adults, with reduced fees for students and seniors, applies at RAM.
