Join us in the lobby of the Stockbridge Library to welcome our next featured artist, Ruth Drysdale. The reception will take place from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 2.
About Ruth Drysdale:
“I have been drawing all my life but never found much excitement from trying to reproduce that which was around me. In 2008 I met up with a class of late bloomers. The teacher said I am not going to ask you to come from your imagination. Where were our images to come from? The best way I can describe it is to quote other artists, these are the quotes that have become like rules to me:
“Art Comes from your heart and it’s full of magic.”
~ Yasmin Kobt (aged 10)
“You can find out how to do something and then do it
Or do something and then find out what you did.”
~ Isamu Noguchi
We all can relate to the fear of having a blank page in front of us. Before you know it you root around in your mind for a picture from your mental picture album, the image is old before it hits the paper. I learned the value of a random mark on paper, no mental search for an idea is necessary. Everyone can find that mark. Your hand starts drawing and before you know it you have a completely fresh original image. I believe every individual has the potential within, right now, to bring truth and beauty out into the visible world. I have found the art that I am passionate about.”
