Ruthie V, Portrait of Tessa in Green, detail. Oil on linen. Life size.

I am thrilled to be showing new work at SAM Gallery! This is a portrait show with six fabulous Seattle artists. I’ll share about the making of these paintings, and post to V. Notes soon.

SAM GALLERY PRESENTS: FREE RADICALS

JUN 12 – JUL 7 2019

SEATTLE ART MUSEUM

SAM GALLERY

10 AM – 5 PM

The artists in this show create portraits based on museum-goers, pop stars, celebrities, unknown Etruscan citizens, and very specific emotions. Much like the 19th-century British artists on view upstairs in Victorian Radicals these artists bring their unique interpretation to the word “portrait.”

Featured Artists

I am presently in NY attending a Figurative Sculpture Intensive Workshop at the NY Studio School, and won’t be able to attend, but I invite you to go and enjoy the show’s opening reception June 13 from 6-7:30 pm. Wear a nametag that says “Ruthie V.” and smile at the generous people who talk to you.
