first_imgFOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE11-21-05JULIE RUTH STUDIO & GALLERY OPENING DECEMBER 1, 2005CONTACT:Julie Ruth802-730-2527julie@julieruthstudio.com(link sends e-mail)Waterbury, VT On Thursday, December 1, 2005, a new gallery will open its doors in Waterbury. Julie Ruth Studio & Gallery is located at 23 South Main Street, above the popular pub and brewery The Alchemist. Julie Ruth, a painter, and her husband Shannon Matthew Long, a sculptor, are the proprietors.Ruth, a painter with a ten-year exhibition record across the U.S. and Canada, first arrived in Vermont four years ago on a painting fellowship at the Vermont Studio Center in Johnson, a large artist residency. After closing down her design and illustration business in Ohio and relocating, she met Long (now the sculpture manager at the Center). Ruth paints mainly in oils in a representational style, working from memory and the surrounding landscape. Long’s sculpture incorporates materials such as river stones and adobe into meditative works with eastern influences.The gallery will feature both Ruth and Longs work, along with a selection of mostly local artists. On display December 1st will be both two- and three-dimensional work, including collage, sterling silver jewelry, greeting cards, small sculptures, and paintings. “I expect to add more artists as the gallery gets established, and to curate shows throughout the year in order to showcase artists whose work I admire that do not live in the area”, Ruth says. The gallery also has a small working space that the artists will use while it is open.The opening of Julie Ruth Studio & Gallery will coincide with the Alchemists celebration of their second anniversary on December 1. Hours that day will be from 2-8. Through December, regular business hours will be Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings: Friday from 5:30-9, Saturday and Sunday from 4-9. Some weekend morning hours will be available, and other hours are by appointment.
