John A. Ruthven, naturalist, author, lecturer, and internationally acknowledged master of wildlife art is often called the “20th Century Audubon.” Ruthven used the same techniques as his famous predecessor. After studying and researching his subject thoroughly, he sketched to rigid specifications then rendered the original painting with great detail.
A select group of storied original paintings will be featured as well as a display of items that speak to John’s achievements and personal life. Local art expert, David Bowen will discuss the life and artwork of this renowned master artist. Dinner will be served following the program.
