“It’s been 20 years since I fell hard for the words of Leonard Cohen and the pictures he painted. It’s also been 20 years since I wanted to make my life about music, art and poetry. This project is inspired by my (sometimes confused) Jewish heritage, the spirit of my homeland and all the sex, love and death that falls in between. Leonard Cohen taught me that art can change the lives of the people around you.” – Anita Lester, FOJAM Curator

Striving for the pursuit of artistic perfection is the backbone of the annual RASart Exhibition of Excellence and is testimony to the passion of the 400+ strong membership of Redcliffe Art Society (RAS). From very humble beginnings back in the late 1950’s the success that followed a local art competition fueled the passionate drive to constitute the Art Society in 1961 and planted the seed for RAS to champion the arts. Much of the council’s art collection contains winning RAS artworks. The current competition is therefore aptly named.
