The Art League of Long Island looks forward to hosting the International Association of Business Communicators “Night At The (Art) Museum” on January 21.  The services provided by IABC are invaluable to the many businesses that share the common goal of honing their communication skills in a rapidly changing business environment.  The Art League is happy to do its part by providing the forum for IABC to further its mission in the Long Island area.

Good communication skills require a degree of creativity, which is in abundance in the League’s Jeanie Tenglesen Gallery.  Please take a moment to take in the floral and watercolor paintings created by acclaimed artist and Art League Instructor Ruth Baderian.  In the hallways, notice the amazing watercolor paintings created by our students.  Our very talented students also realize that there is always room to learn and grow, no matter how “expert” one becomes.

Floral and Landscape Paintings by Ruth Baderian to Exhibit at the Art League of Long Island

Works by Ruth Baderian, a well-known local artist and mentor to many at the Art League of Long Island, will be on display in the Art League’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.

Ruth E. Baderian, born July 2, 1927 in the Bronx, N.Y., earned a scholarship to the Art Students League in New York City. She then became an artist and teacher specializing in watercolor and oil. Her florals and landscapes in watercolor and oil are celebrated both nationally and internationally.

Baderian won numerous awards for her work from well-known organizations including the Salmagundi Club, American Artists Professional League and Long Island University. She studied with Jean Liberte, Harry Sternberg & Barbara Vassilieff.

Ruth Baderian was a signature member of the American Watercolor Society, and won the Grumbacher Gold Medal three times. She was a member of, and teacher at, the Art League of Long Island.  She has been mentioned in Davenports Art Reference and Price Guide, Who’s Who in American Art (1973, 1976), and Who Was Who in American Art by Falk.

Her works appeared in The Best of Flower Painting, Artistic Touch 2 and Artistic Touch 3 as well as in “Watercolor Magazine” Winter 1999, and in “American Artist Magazine” April 1996. Although Ruth passed away on December 17, 2010, she continues to inspire people through her deep sense of awe, reverence and gratitude that is represented in her paintings.
