Exhibit listing and art resume for Ruth Ann Howden "Art is an outlet to regions not ruled by time and space." Marcel Duchamp

My art is a visual language telling the story of who I am, and tracing a map of where I am going. Each painting is an opportunity to speak out to you the viewers. Each painting is an opportunity to become better acquainted with myself. My images honor cycles and celebrate our place within natural boundaries while also exploring self-imposed or society-imposed boundaries.

The paintings begin with a monotype. Then colored pencil, pen and ink or pastels are worked in. Gold or metal leaf, and handmade papers are often added embellishments.
