Ruth Moscovitch originally studied printmaking in Chicago under Bruno and Hedi Bak. She was a founding member of the Chicago Printmakers Workshop and a member of the Chicago Printmakers Collaborative. For many years, she set aside art while raising a family and working as a lawyer in the public and private sectors. In 2005, she moved to the New York metro area, where she joined the Manhattan Graphics Center and also became a labor arbitrator. Ruth joined the Board of MGC in time to help plan the move to West 40th Street. She has served as President, Co-President, Secretary and head of MGC’s grants committee since the move. She has had solo shows in Chicago and Manhattan and has participated in group shows through MGC in New York as well as Prague, Australia and Haifa. She has also participated in group shows at the New York Society of Etchers, Chicago Printmakers Collaborative, Siren’s Song Gallery, Spring Studio, and the Art Studio and the Artist Framer, both in New Jersey.

Ruth uses traditional printmaking techniques such as intaglio etching, linocut and Japanese woodblock. Her current work focuses on Manhattan bridges and streetscapes, but she has also used collograph and monotype to create abstract constructions of shape and depth. Currently Ruth studies oil painting with Liz Marrafino at the Manhattan JCC and portrait painting in acrylics at the Spring Studio. Her work can be seen at her website:
