Last year, Wac Arts collaborated with The Ruth Leibman Will Trust to showcase some of the best paintings created by the Late Ruth Leibman. We received an overwhelming response from the viewers, and are delighted to announce the return of Ruth’s work at Wac Arts premises. ‘The Spring Collection’ reflects Ruth’s take on Hampstead Heath back then, featuring highly reminiscent portraits and landscapes executed in the vicinity of Belsize Park and in Kew Gardens, together with landscapes executed in the vicinity of her mobile home near Tewkesbury.
The paintings like ‘View from country after the storm’, ‘Gerberas and re rose’, ‘Two Shells’, ‘Hydrangeas’, in the collection present her observation and personal encounters with the nature. The retrospective exhibition will showcase Ruth’s work over the years, displaying paintings from as early 1950s until late 1990s.
Wac Arts, along with the Ruth Leibman Will Trust, is holding an opening night for the exhibition, featuring still life and portraiture, on April 16th 2015, 6:30 - 8:30 PM. The exhibition will be open for public April 26th onwards, every Thursday 6:30-8:30 PM till May 28th 2015. The entire collection is available to buy, with all proceeds from the sale supporting the charitable work of Wac Arts.
