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. Apart from art, Ruth had a long career in the public and private sectors as an attorney. Recently she moved to New York, became a labor arbitrator and hearing officer and returned to printmaking. Currently she is the president of the Manhattan Graphics Center, an artists’ cooperative studio. She has had solo shows in Chicago and in Manhattan and has participated in group shows at the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, the Manhattan Graphics Center, Siren’s Song Gallery, and the Art Studio and the Artist Framer, both in New Jersey. Her work has traveled to Prague and Haifa. Ruth uses traditional etching techniques including intaglio, aquatint, chine-collé, soft and hard grounds to convey streetscapes of Manhattan, and Chicago neighborhood corners, alleys and hot-dog stands; she also has a series of Midwestern landscapes featuring barns and silos. More recently, she has moved to abstract pieces using collograph and a variety of etching techniques. She also paints, mostly landscapes in oil and watercolors. Since moving to New York, she has studied drawing from life at the Spring Studio. Her portraits are done in acrylics. To see her work, visit her website at ruthmoscovitch.com
