RCHS Exhibit Gallery
The Ramsey County Historical Society (RCHS) announces an exhibition of artwork and photography, “Reflections on Ramsey.” Iconic landscapes and historic themes from Ramsey County are featured in this juried exhibition. Accompanying these works of art are historical artifacts pertaining to the locations depicted.
Given free rein to address their chosen subject, the artists and photographers have come up with wildly different interpretations of what is historic in Ramsey County. The artworks run a wide gamut of styles and subject matter, from delicate engravings to bold digital prints, from ethereal plein-aire paintings to vibrant photographs.
This exhibition combines the past and present, showcasing our community in a way everyone can appreciate. In some cases enormous changes have occurred over time, in others visitors will be able to see the enduring qualities of local icons. Along the way the visitor will become a little more connected to the community we all share.
The art will be exhibited in the RCHS Exhibit Gallery, RCHS’ changing
gallery space in the north end of the Landmark Center. Prizes will
be awarded, $500.00, $300.00 and $200.00, for first, second and
third place as determined by the jurors. All artists who were
selected to participate will receive a free RCHS membership for one
year, and will have the opportunity to have an image of their work
included in the RCHS archives.
Thank you to all the participating artists
