Ruth Bercaw Studio Tour
April 16, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm$20
Week two of our Studio Tours program gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the artistic processes of the artists exhibiting in the Artist Archives’ show “Reinvention”. Reinvention documents the stories of five artists who reinvented themselves and their work in order to overcome limitations forced on them because of traumatic injury, aging or disease. The acceptance, adaptation and growth that each underwent as part of the crisis process resulted in the production of powerful, original bodies of work in divergent directions. We will be starting the tour at Ruth’s at 1:00pm prompt, then have refreshments, then finish up at Kim’s studio.
Ruth Bercaw had always worked three-dimensionally until 2005, when the pain and swelling in her hands caused her to reinvent how she expressed herself through art. Color was the vehicle that transitioned her work from 3D to 2D. What was once peaks and angles are now expressed through lines and shapes. The results were readily embraced by the art community for a rather seamless evolution.
Join us at Ruth’s studio for a glimpse of her creative process, the unique papers she uses and some of her painting techniques.
Ruth Bercaw’s studio is located in the Heller Building in Cleveland. The address will be provided once a ticket is purchased. Call the Archives to purchase a ticket at 216-721-9020. Tickets: $10 AAWR Member, $20 Non Member.
