Ruth’s Work in Atlanta Print Biennial

The display was organized by the Atlanta Printmakers Studio as “an international juried exhibit of hand pulled prints and works on paper produced by renowned artists from around the world.”

Ruth’s work was one of 70 prints selected from more than 750 entries from the United States, Canada, Europe, and Japan. Atlanta Printmakers Studio is a non-profit organization, dedicated to teaching and promoting the art of printmaking. His print will be on display through Dec. 3.

Ruth also presented his work at Central Michigan University, Alfred University, and the Printmaking Institute at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and has appeared in several additional galleries and national juried exhibitions. He is the former president of the Print Club of Rochester and a 2008 recipient of a Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts Individual Artist Grant. In 2009, Ruth participated in the 2009 Sanbao International Printmaking Exhibition, a group invitational hosted by the Jingdezhen Sanbao Ceramic Art Institute, Shanxi University College of Fine Art, and the Beijing Center Academy of Fine Art in China.
