We are thrilled to offer an amazing opportunity to dine and socialize in the unique and art-filled garden of Ginny Ruffner, an internationally acclaimed, Seattle-based artist. Our host’s gem of a garden is hidden away, but is right in the heart of downtown Ballard.

Ginny Ruffner trained at the University of Georgia as a painter (MFA, 1975) and works with a wide variety of media (including paint, glass, metal, and even pop-up books!). She has written two books, has lectured and taught extensively, and has served as an artist in residence at schools and universities. She has also been the subject of an inspiring, award-winning documentary titled Ginny Ruffner: A Not So Still Life.

Ruffner’s artwork has appeared in 74 solo shows and in several hundred group shows, and is in 53 permanent museum and public collections around the world. Her public art installations in the Seattle area include a 30-foot tall kinetic water feature in downtown Seattle (The Urban Garden, 2011), and an installation in the Seattle Art Museum’s Olympic Sculpture Park (Mary's Invitation - A Place to Regard Beauty, 2014).

APLDWA is incredibly fortunate to have this rare opportunity to get to know Ginny and to enjoy her provocative garden!

Schedule:
5 pm – Enjoy finger foods, beverages, and socializing in garden
6-6:20 pm – APLD announcements and introductions
6:20-7pm – Informal conversation with Ginny Ruffner
7-9pm – Continue grazing and socializing in garden

The cost for this event is $40 per person. This is an APLDWA members-only event and space is limited. The registration deadline is Thursday, August 6th, 
but the event will likely fill up before that date! If you have any questions please send them to Susanne O’Trimble at otrimble44@centurylink.net.
