Nicholas Ruth chose to pursue his passion for art because doing so would allow him to draw from his varied interests in philosophy, psychology, sociology, geography, and history. Ruth’s current work explores the ways we “litter our lives with the artifacts of our desires,” as—working with varied surfaces—he creates monoprints that express his perspectives on modern communication.
A member of the Print Club of Rochester, Ruth earned his M.F.A. from the Meadows School of the Arts at Southern Methodist University and his B.A. from Pomona College. He is a professor of art and architecture at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Ruth’s work has been exhibited throughout North America, as well as in Korea, Portugal, Ireland, and France.
