Ruth Weisberg’s (B.S.DES ‘63, M.A., ‘64) career, influences, and work are discussed in a Huffington Post essay by John Seed. Ruth Weisberg: Reflections Through Time, a survey of Weisberg’s art and legacy, is on display at L.A.‘s Jack Rutberg Fine Arts Inc. through August 29.
Weisberg’s current exhibition — Ruth Weisberg: Reflections Through Time — offers the opportunity to view and consider a selection of her key works. Most are drawings and prints, along with a single mixed media painting on canvas. “I see painting and drawing as tremendously inter-related,” Weisberg comments, “and printmaking has always been very important to me.” The show has been hung to forefront pairings of works and relationships between themes, and works that might have been made decades apart are often seen in close proximity.
