John Ruthven to unveil new work at reception benefiting the Ursulines of Brown County and Chatfield College

March 10th, 2011

The Ursulines of Brown County and Chatfield College would like to invite the public to an art reception at 1 p.m. on Sunday, March 27 at UBS Financial Services, where renowned wildlife artist John Ruthven will present his newest commissioned work:  Winter Flight- Sacred Heart Chapel (circa 1885).

The painting is an acrylic on canvas featuring native Ohio cardinals flying in front of the beautiful Sacred Heart Chapel on the grounds of the Ursulines of Brown County adjacent to Chatfield College. 

“Chatfield College and the Ursulines are honored to have the opportunity to celebrate John Ruthven's inimitable wildlife work with a painting that features the chapel and our campus,” said Agatha Fitzgerald, OSU, Faculty member and Alumni Association Advisor for Chatfield College.

Only 250 signed and numbered giclee' prints will ever be produced of this limited edition work and will be available for purchase.  The original painting will be auctioned off at 2 p.m.  A limited number of remarques will also be available for purchase, as well as other works by John Ruthven.   All proceeds benefit the Ursulines of Brown County and Chatfield College.

The reception, hosted by Baylis/Pacetti/Taylor Wealth Management, is free and open to the public.  However, reservations are required.  Complimentary beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres will be served.  The reception will be held at UBS Financial Services, located at 8044 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, OH.
