Kay Ritter

American (1950)

About the artist:

I came to painting relatively late. Twenty years of three-dimensional works and perhaps the arrival of midlife left me longing for a change of subject, medium, interpretive style -- all of it. Though I attended RISD in the late sixties and early seventies, as a painter I am essentially self-taught. I began with pastel and then moved on to oil, did a lot of reading and scrutinized the masters of still life. Most of my heroes are not still life painters per se. Martin Johnson Heade and Johannes Vermeer top my list, but I am drawn to and influenced by Spanish Painters Cotan and Zurbaran, the American John Peto and the French master of fruit and flowers Henri Fantin-Latour. My technique is painstaking and incremental in nature. I work ony from life, no photographs, and most often with natural light. My goal is a simple one but not easily attained. I hope, through careful arrangement and the closest and truest observation I can manage, to produce for the viewer and emotional response to the common objects that surround us all. - Kay Ritter Education Rhode Island School of Design, 1968 - 1971 Shows and Exhibitions, Sculpture: Group Show- Virginia Lynch Gallery, Tiverton, RI, December 2001 Group Show- Grand Central Gallery at The Boston Fine Arts Show, Boston MA November 2001 Group Show- Eleanor Ettinger Gallery, New York, NY July 2001 Group Show- Rhode Island Foundation, Providence RI, November 2000 Juried Show - Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club 104th Annual Exhibit, New York NY, October 2000 Group Show- Virginia Lynch Gallery, Tiverton RI, September 2000 Solo Show- Gross McCleaf Gallery, Philadelphia, PA April 1998 Group Show- Virginia Lynch Gallery Tiverton RI, August 1997 Group Show- The Somerhil Gallery, Chapel Hill, NC, December 1996 Group Show- Virginia Lynch Gallery, Tiverton RI, December 1996 Solo Show- Mark Milliken Gallery, New York, NY June 1996 Awards: Painting Third Annual National Juried Exhibition, Shippensburg University, Juror Robert Fishko, Forum Gallery; Third Place Public Collections: Sculpture Merriam Webster Co., Springfield, MA Marathon Companies, Providence, RI National Baseball Hall of Fame, Cooperstown, NY Highlights Sports Museum, Portland, OR
