Drawing by Ruta Schuller
Ruta Schuller is a retired UNC-Chapel Hill librarian and former archivist/librarian at the Milwaukee Art Museum. She completed an “Artist at Work” Certificate in Drawing at the ArtsCenter in Carrboro, in addition to the Botantical Illustration and Art Certificate Program at the North Carolina Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill.  Ruta is a member of several local artist organizations and has participated in juried exhibitions. Her works are also found in private collections.

Artist's Statement: "Observations on nature and urban life from early childhood both in Europe and the United States, and later travels, led to my choices in content and means of expression. Early exposure to natural history and art museums also had a large influence. My paintings and drawings, whether they are of plant life, landscape or an urban scene, have a story to tell."

Prior to the exhibition there will be an artist Meet and Greet, Friday, May 31 from 12:00 to 1:00 p.m.
