ROAR Art Show | Russell, KS

Since 1969, the ROAR Show (Russell’s Original Art Review) has given Kansas artists the opportunity to show and sell their work as well as compete for prize money. Visitors last year viewed over 250 works of art by professional and amateur Kansas artists in categories including paintings in oil techniques, paintings in watercolor techniques, other two-dimension, sculpture, pastels, photography, computer generated or manipulated original composition, and ceramics.


Members of the Russell community volunteer over 500 hours of their time to organize and receive works, display works and promote the show to artists, educational institutions and the public. Prize money is raised from entry fees and private or corporate donations. The ROAR committee invites you to support this worthwhile endeavor.

The ROAR Show receives no government funds. Please support the arts by sending your donation made payable to the ROAR Show to P.O. Box 94, Russell, KS 67665, or hand it to a Committee Member. Thank you for your support.
