2024 Artist: Ruth Anne Barker

As Arts Marathon artists we will send a different example of our creative process and work to everyone who sponsors us, five days per week during April. We invite our friends, family, colleagues and anyone else who cares about art and wants to support Bridge to Rutland’s important work to sponsor us. Together we will help welcome new Americans who, in turn, will add immeasurably to our communities.

Ruth Anne‘s Arts Marathon Goal
My preferred medium is watercolor. My pieces generally do not exceed 12" x 18".
Ruth Anne‘s Background

I graduated with a degree in Fine Arts and Art History from Brown University. I began to paint after I retired. For me, the wonder comes from the creative process which totally involves the self in the now.

I approach the white paper with an openess and exploratory ethic, rarely with an explicit artistic goal. Sometimes, an idea may coalesce into a vision to be realized. I use color as an organizing tool to achieve compositional cohesion. I hope you will enjoy my work but there is no need to find meaning in it.
