Artist Talk – Ruth Ball
Tuesday 24th September 2019

Location : The Athenaeum, Liverpool (Church Alley).

Time: Arrivals from 1.00pm for 1.30pm start

Tickets : £18 each (includes tea, sandwiches & cakes at The Athenaeum, Liverpool).

Enamel artist Ruth Ball will speak about her artistic career.

Ruth first spoke at the Athenaeum in 2014 about her practice, she now returns as her career has developed and she has explored new avenues. This includes Ruth’s time as artist in residence at Royal Liverpool University Hospital. This was as part of Bluecoat Display Centre’s outreach programme, Ruth taught printmaking to those living with dementia. This was also a valuable experience for Ruth, as this was her first time working directly with patients and in the hospital environment.

Ruth uses the fusion of glass on metal to produce a diverse collection. These range in scale from fine jewellery pieces and bespoke objects to larger wall based artworks. Items are made as “one-offs” or in small batches as limited editions. Her work can be found in selected gallery outlets and various national and international exhibitions.

A traditional afternoon tea in the grand setting of The Athenaeum will follow the talk.
