Special Notice | ROAR Art Show 2020

The 2020 ROAR Art Show will not be held this fall. The cancellation is due out of concern and safety for all persons especially our patrons, artists and the availability of facilities at that time. We intend to proceed as we have in the past 50 years to have a show for next year.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
ROAR Committee

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.
