Artist Ginny Ruffner Reimagines Nature

Internationally renowned artist Ginny Ruffner does not consider herself only a glass artist. “I am an artist… glass is just one of the media I use,” she said in an interview with Nora Atkinson, the Lloyd Herman Acting Curator-in-Charge at the Renwick Gallery. In her latest exhibition, Ginny Ruffner: Reforestation of the Imagination, opening June 28, 2019, at the Renwick Gallery, Ruffner combines glass, drawing and augmented reality (AR) technology to create a multidimensional landscape that calls into question our very notions of reality and fantasy, of concrete and abstract, and of desolation and hope.
