Kari was raised at the edge of The Finger Lakes National Forest – which set the stage for her deep connection to the natural landscape. After earning a B.S. in Fine Art from Ashland University in Ohio, she returned to Central NY. She and her husband Diego Ruiz (Stereo Photographer and Stained Glass artist) now live in Union Springs on the north end of Cayuga Lake.

At The Edge features a series of  twenty two original paintings which focus on scenes found at the edge; literally or figuratively. They may have been stumbled upon while hiking a rocky trail, or their secret precariousness may have been discovered only after the piece was realized.  Kari says, “I have recently found myself intrigued by small bits of the greater scene; the corner of a building, an edge of marsh, a little glimpse down that narrow path. I prefer to capture these moments en plein air – to represent the essence of that something which made me stop and go back.

Kari is an associate member of the the Oil Painters of America and a member At Days End 12x12of the NY Plein Air Painters. In 2014, she participated in numerous events and juried exhibits including Finger Lakes Plein Air, Seneca Lake Plein Air, Plein Air Festival at Damiani Wine Cellars, Adirondack Plein Air, En Plein air at Olana Historic Site, the Sagamore Hill painting competition, the Stone Quarry Hill Art Park juried exhibit in Cazenovia NY, and the NYS juried exhibit at the Frederic Remington Museum. Her plein air and studio works are held in public and private collections throughout the US.

We hope you’ll make plans to stop by soon and see this stunning new show!
