Blandscliff gallery is delighted to have Ruth Miemczyk as their current guest artist.

Her art studies began at Barnsley School of Art in the 60’s, where much emphasis was placed on building up skills in drawing and painting, followed by Fine Art Painting at the Central School of Art and Design in London. “These were special times with a host of very renowned artists teaching in the big London Art Colleges.”

She has worked as a painter for over 40 years, with 10 solo shows as part of the Hospital arts scheme, some of which were touring shows, numerous solo exhibitions in art centres, private galleries and county museums in the UK and abroad, with 2 major exhibitions in Poland, as well as taking part in many group shows and painting residencies. She has work in many private collections, as well as banks, hospitals, the industrial sector and universities.

This new exhibition, “Harbours” is a group of paintings that began unintentionally to represent actual harbours. The black, angular shapes cutting into the picture-plane seemed to indicate aerial harbour shapes. Several photographs and drawings in sketchbooks during trips to Dieppe have found their way into some of the work, as well as map fragments and watching the progression of sea-charts on ferry crossings. In newer works there are also several references to Scarborough Harbour.
