Embracing art since childhood, Ruth Morrow has spent the last twenty eight years painting and photographing the beauty of the Mother Lode. Ruth's loose and fanciful painting style is visible in her watercolors, acrylics, oils and mixed media pieces many of which contain recycled objects.
The past two years have been busy and gratifying for her artistic endeavors. At Sacramento Fine Arts Gallery Ruth was presented with an award of excellence for her watercolor "A Close-Knit Village" and the Olive Schmid Memorial Award for her piece "Spring at the Old Homestead." She received multiple awards at the 2013 Frog Jump Professional art show and a second and third at October's Mother Lode Art Show. She won a bronze plaque from Windsor-Newton Co. in N.Y. for her excellence in watercolor and the Florence Ferraro Award for her watercolor "The Tea Party."
The artist was the first to win the Ironstone Obsession poster contest twice with "A Romp in the Dills" and "Truckin Dills." And, her pieces have appeared in the KVIE Art Auction nine years running.
Ruth is a member of ALOFT Co-op Gallery in Sonora, Art On Main in Murphys, Calaveras Arts Council, The Golden Palette, Arts of Bear Valley, Sacramento Fine Arts Gallery, Watercolor Artists of Sacramento Hori-zons, and Northern CA Artists.
Her work may also be seen at Townhall Arts in Copperopolis, Murphy's Grill, The Window Gallery in Arnold and her Arnold Studio.
