About the Artist

As a visual artist and as a human, Ruth Heffron is interested in relationships of all kinds: how individuals relate to their communities and to the natural world; how people relate to each other; how the urban community and its rural environs work harmoniously, or not. Throughout her careers she has always had a focus on community. Perhaps this grows out of the years she spent as an army brat traveling and adjusting quickly to new communities.For 20 years Ruth worked in community foundations in South Carolina and Maine, building Charleston’s Coastal Community Foundation from the ground up from 1981 to 1997. From 1999 to 2005 Ruth and her husband owned and operated The Compass Rose Bookstore and Café in Castine Maine. They wanted to give patrons sensual stimulations from the smell of cookies and coffee to the sound of CDs and the feel of paper and stuffed animals. This lively, lovely atmosphere made patrons linger and make friends with books.They always saw the store as a community-meeting place. Ruth is a board member of Art Ambassadors for a Colorful World. She traveled with Founder, Kevin Macpherson, to Guatemala to make art with the children of San Martin.

Artist Statement

To me, a painting is like a poem… and I’ve always liked poetry that shines light on the ordinary and that’s what I want to do with my paintings, to get people to notice things – whether it’s a line of cows on a snowy hill, sunset illuminating boats, or a plate of garden tomatoes. I primarily work in oils, sometimes I add cold wax to help me abstract and simplify what I see...what I love...what has stopped me in my tracks. It is landscapes that hold most of my attention - bringing the outside in - celebrating light and the reciprocity of the natural world. Painting provides the opportunity for a conversation with nature. I hope you’ll want to listen in.RHH
