Welcome Back to RAM!
This June we are happy to reopen our doors to our main galleries for RAM members and the general public. For your safety, we’re taking every health and safety precaution recommended by the Arkansas State Health Department which includes a robust daily cleaning protocol, traffic control, enforcing social distancing guidelines, and having hand sanitizing stations and masks available.
For the near-term, the Touch Gallery, the Student Gallery, and The W. H. Knight Porcelain Gallery will remain closed.
We have two beautiful exhibits; Tim Ernst, Arkansas Wildlife Photographer — yes we still have a few of his signed books in the gift shop, hurry they are going fast!
Gracing the upstairs gallery, A FAMILY AFFAIR, the wonderful work of lifetime Fort Smith artist Dede Hutcheson and her talented daughters, Robyn Horn and Karen Hutcheson.
