Ruth Koelewyn's work uses familiar objects and events to reveal how our interactions with them shape ourselves and our context for living. In addition to her solo work, her practice includes both curatorial and collaborative projects. Ruth’s work is regularly exhibited and has been supported by the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts, the Society of North American Goldsmiths, the Mondriaan Foundation, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts. She studied at Syracuse University and Cranbrook Academy of Art. More of her work can be seen at
