SCG Open Studio Hours with Ruth Ellen Hoag

Come meet the artist on Thursdays and Fridays

SCG | Special Arts Events

August 8 / 12:00 pm - August 23 / 2:00 pm

“My artistic practice spans a lifetime, from the earliest memories sitting under the baby grand while my mother taught voice, to years of piano studies; to the discovery of the French horn and subsequent years at Manhattan School of Music; the professional years of orchestral playing; and finally, to picking up a paintbrush when my music career was interrupted, leading to a new phase of creative life in art. 

After the conscious decision to leave my horn behind for the opportunity to live in Japan, an interesting segue occurred. I was introduced to Japanese Shodo, (calligraphic writing,) which bonded me into a relationship with the brush. Returning to the States, I pursued figurative drawing and painting intensely for two years, the end of which sealed my devotion to brush and the figure.”

~Ruth Ellen Hoag
