Silhouette Artist – Ruth Monsell

During the month of August, Ruth Monsell from Artful Heirlooms will be exhibiting silhouettes at the library. The silhouette is an ancient art form, with its greatest popularity between the mid-18th and 19th centuries. Today silhouette artists are few and difficult to find. Ruth Monsell is one of the top silhouette artists in the country, and her work is in part an effort to keep the esteemed art form alive and available. Many of Ruth’s original works and prints are for sale.
