Every month, the Parkhill Carnegie Gallery highlights a Featured Artist to showcase the work of an individual in the community. Featured artists are not always gallery members, but their work stands out amongst the community and highlights their unique styles!
This March, Ruth Cook is Artist of The Month.
Artist, Art Teacher, Painter, and Community Activist
Ruth has been painting since 1993 and teaching since 1996. She has had designs and patterns published in magazines in Canada, France, and the United States. Her work has been collected in several states, Europe, and the United Kingdom.
She has earned teacher accreditations in pen-ink & oils, Genesis oils, and in realistic oils. She has also earned the Canadian Standards of Excellence in both Primitive and Colour Theory.
Ruth has taught at conventions and private functions in several States and across Canada.
She is currently actively involved in the local Parkhill Carnegie Art Gallery as President of the Board of Directors, curator, and teaches both children and adults on a regular basis.
