First Impressions by Ruth Shively
Posted on May 06 2011
Hope to see you all tomorrow for the opening reception of Ruth Shively's exhibit, “First Impressions,” an exploration of modern women from different cultures around the world. Shively was born and raised in Nebraska, where she received her Fine Arts degree from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. She worked briefly as an illustrator in New York City and moved back and forth from Oregon to New York before settling in Portland. We love her depiction of powerful, independent women with a soft, vulnerable quality, and we think you will too!
