Ruth Laxson

b. June 1924 Roanoke, Alabama

Poet and book artist Ruth Laxson uses language as a key element in her work.  She has been living and working in Atlanta since 1953.  After years of printmaking, drawing, and performing, Laxson began making artist’s books in 1980. She has been a visiting artist at the University of Iowa, Center for the Book; Atlanta College of Art; Agnes Scott College. Laxson has exhibited in solo and groups shows at the Newberger Museum, SUNY; the Rolling Stone Press; Atlanta College of Art; the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC; San Antonio Art Institute; and the Zeitgenossiche Handpressendrucke, Hamburg. Her work is held in numerous public and private collections both nationally and abroad, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Fine Arts Academy, New Delhi; Tate Gallery, London; High Museum of Art, Atlanta; Yale University Fine Art & Architecture Library; Rhode Island School of Design; and at MOCA GA. Laxson was featured as one of twenty-seven artists in the recent Georgia Council for the Arts publication: “Georgia Masterpieces: Selected Works from Georgia Museums” and the MOCA GA exhibition it inspired, Twenty Georgia Masters.
