Nick Ruth, assistant professor of art, was quoted in the July 23 issue of Rochester Insider, in the article “Click your way to a masterpiece.” According to Ruth, the availability of scanners, high-resolution printers and image-editing software makes creating art easy even for those who are not artistic.
“After the initial investment in the hardware, it's incredibly cheap and a great way to have beautiful and personally meaningful things around you in a simple and affordable way,” said Ruth. “The best place you could start is probably with limited versions of art software… even MS Paint is a good place to start fiddling around.”
Ruth's work has been shown at the Academy Art Museum in Easton, Md., the Hera Gallery in Wakefield, R.I., and Pittsburgh's Three Rivers Arts Festival, as well as several additional galleries and national juried exhibitions.
Ruth lives in Rochester, where he also has a studio. He joined the Colleges in 1995. Ruth holds a bachelor's degree from Pomona College in California and a master's of fine arts from Southern Methodist University in Texas.
