Methven Art Gallery Exhibition – Ruth Reid

Ruth Reid - Methven Art Gallery

Ruth is a New Zealand born artist who now lives in Christchurch.  She is passionate about painting, exploring, sharing and preserving our wilderness areas. As a skier and tramper she goes into the mountains and bush with camera slung over her shoulder and sketching materials at hand.  It thrills Ruth when her paintings encourage people to visit the places she paints, or reminds them of trips they have made.

All her materials are fine artist quality and she paints both en plein air (on location) and larger pieces in her studio. She’s represented by various galleries in New Zealand, has appeared painting live for various documentaries and shows, has exhibited in New Zealand Parliament and has had some success with international awards in both landscape and abstract art.

You can see her artwork on her website:
