ARTISTS ON THEIR ART (SERIES)

February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Share this

Please join UUCP on Thursday, February 22nd at 7:00 PM for our “Artists On Their Art” Series. We are pleased to have two very accomplished artists for our series: Ruth Bauer Neustadter and Richard Rainey.

Ruth Bauer Neustadter:

Driven by an archeological, environmental and political urgency, Ruth travels through life discovering discarded materials which she is inspired to transform into meaningful and provocative works of art.

As a woman, dancer, teacher and visual artist Ruth has found that her work weaves together her many passions. Over the years Ruth has created bodies of work-sculptural paintings-all of which have been sparked by the interplay of her “gems” of  found materials, into thick acrylic, oil paint and at times cement. These materials not only form layers and textures, but they pull the viewer into and around the painting as in a dance.

Ruth’s work with the human figure, often on multiple canvases, breaks up and distorts the figure creating unexpected negative spaces, fully engaging the imagination of the viewer. Her work is bold, highly textured and sensual. It is reminiscent of her exposure and involvement in a three dimensional space as a dancer, translated into a two dimensional format.

Ruth’s desire is to arouse a kinesthetic response, a desire to touch. Ultimately, she wants the observer to be pulled into and around the work, inspiring one to embrace new ideas, memories questions and perhaps passions.

Richard Rainey:

What would make a young teenager named Rich Rainey growing up in Paterson, New Jersey want to learn to play the 5-string banjo and follow a southern style of music foreign to both his family upbringing and the nations pop music explosion of the Fifties? Come to UUCP’s “Artists on Thir Art” on February 22nd and find out the answer and be entertained with banjo music.

There will be time after for questions, discussion and some refreshments. We look forward to seeing you!
