Right in New York Harbor Bay, a short ferry hop away, I have begun my artist residency with Lower Manhattan Cultural Council on Governor's Island as part of their Process Space Program.
From August - December, 2015!!!
I am posting regular Facebook photos on my page - Artist Ruth Marshall. Please peruse to see photos of the island and updates on my works in progress. I am using this residency to explore ideas for new artwork, this will included drawings & knitting experiments.
PRESS RELEASEExtract: "The local band of Williamsburg gallerists and artists knew another and saw each other’s struggles as their own. We truck-pooled to fairs and bought tickets to each other’s fundraisers. It was a community that helped shape all who were sharing a unique moment in such a very special place.......This is the story about artists who built a gallery. It’s a celebration of how far we have branched from our roots on the corner of Marcy and Hope, (Brooklyn, New York)."
You are also cordially invited for the presentation award ceremony of the Bronx Recognizes It's Own Award of which I am a recipient. This Wednesday 10th June - here is the info and here is the RSVP
I am very excited to be invited to show two pieces of artwork for the Blacktail Gala event at the National Museum of Wildlife Art.
To help the museum build their esteemed collection, guests from their community vote on a selection of artworks with fixed prices, and the most popular pieces are then purchased from previously raised funds. Run like an auction, while avoiding the unknowable hammer price, with a feel good atmosphere, I think this is such a unique, cool idea! I bet that's why it's sold out!
If you are in the Jackson, Wyoming area this will be such a fun event! INFO
My pieces in the Gala are:
Tiger Cub Tiger #70374
I'm pleased to announce that Tiger Cub is now a part of the museum collection!
