Ruth Rowland will be at Art in Action next week; the event which shows how artists work in studio.
From 16th-19th July, Ruth will be showing her work and demonstrating her vast lettering skills at Waterperry House in Oxford. Originally set up in the '70s, Art in Action is as a way to showcase how artists work day to day, it's a rare opportunity to meet and talk with professional artists about their work methods and professional lives. Ruth says "Last year the event had around 25,000 visitors over four days and as a regular attender myself, I can personally vouch for the wonderful atmosphere that keeps visitors coming back....The organisers are renowned for their attention to detail and the care they take of visitors and exhibitors, ensuring a high standard of work and a wonderful array of artwork from sculpture, glassblowing and textiles to printmaking, calligraphy and illustration and much more besides. If you have an interest in art and you’ve never been before, you have a treat in store." Ruth will be talking about her life as a lettering artist, chatting about some of the well known and less well known jobs she's worked on, demonstrating with some of her favourite brushes and pens and selling some A3 limited edition prints.
