Ruth Ginsberg was a long-time resident of the Washington, DC area before relocating to New York. She studied, for 4 years, with renowned fiber artist Lynn Egbert, mastering the various techniques of textile printing and painting. Ruth sold her textile designs to fabric manufacturers through a N.Y. agent. She is a graduate of Montgomery College.
Ruth has had numerous one-man shows, received awards in juried group shows, and exhibited in national juried shows. One of her paintings was selected by the National Endowment of the Arts for a group show that traveled, for 2 years, to museums throughout the U.S.A.
Ruth has taught at several institutions including the Smithsonian Institution and did demonstrations for the Department of Commerce which was promoting a cottage industry for rural areas. She also has given demonstrations on network TV.
Ruth, who has written a child's ‘how to' book on crafts, also wrote an arts and crafts column for a Washington weekly. Later, she opened her own graphics studio in Kensington, MD. Among her clients were the Kennedy Center and the Marriott Corporation.
Ruth has resided in New York since 1995. She is equally accomplished in abstract and realistic painting, and is particularly attracted by colors. Ruth has exhibited and received awards in local art shows and, in 2004, exhibited with 3 other artists at the Cork Gallery at Lincoln Center.
