Juror or Awards: Ruth Moscovitch
Ruth Moscovitch originally studied printmaking in Chicago under Bruno and Hedi Bak. She was a founding member of the Chicago Printmakers Workshop and a member of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. For many years, she set aside art for a career in the public and private sectors as an attorney. Twelve years ago, she moved to the East Coast where she became a labor arbitrator while pursuing printmaking and, more recently, painting. Ruth prints at the Manhattan Graphics Center, located at 250 West 40th Street, 5th Floor, an artists’ collaborative workshop, where she serves as the President of the Board. She has had solo shows in Chicago and Manhattan and has participated in international group shows in Prague, Australia and Haifa, and in the United States at the New York Society of Etchers, Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, the Manhattan Graphics Center, Siren’s Song Gallery, Spring Studio, and the Art Studio and the Artist Framer, both in New Jersey.
Ruth uses traditional printmaking techniques such as intaglio etching, linocut and Japanese woodblock. Her work focuses on Manhattan bridges and streetscapes, but she has also used collograph and monotype to create abstract constructions of shape and depth. Her work can be seen at her website - https://www.ruthmoscovitch.com.
