The Glenn H. Curtiss Museum will exhibit “Art of the Finger Lakes: Ruth Connell, Artist” this summer, showcasing the work of the Ruth Connell.   Ruth Connell is inspired by the landscape of western New York State, with a focus on Keuka Lake and the nearby fields and forests.  Ruth is an artist, architect and educator.  Originally from Corning, Ruth Connell lives and works in Maryland, returning frequently to visit upstate New York with her camera, painting materials and walking shoes.  Ruth paints primarily in oils, and likes both studio and plein air painting. Ruth’s printmaking medium of choice is lithography. Her concentration is on the landscape and the process of abstraction. As both an architect and an artist, she is interested in the visual dynamics of our everyday environments, and in the idealization of the natural world.

Her work has been shown in several juried exhibitions.

Ruth began her career in Philadelphia, and has taught architecture in Florida, New York State, and Maryland. She has written about many aspects of art and architecture, and has given many public presentations. Ruth was a Senior Fulbright Scholar in Poland, teaching and researching architecture and urban design at the Technical University of Gdansk. Ruth lives in Annapolis, and teaches architecture at Morgan State University in Baltimore.  The exhibition dates are May 23 to Sept 2, 2014
