"Ranunculus Collage"

Exhibition of professor’s digital collage and photography opens Nov. 19

Ranunculus Collage by Sue Bloom
November 08, 2013

“Artifacts: Photography by Susan Ruddick Bloom,” opening Nov. 19 in McDaniel’s Rice Gallery in Peterson Hall, highlights digital collage and painting photographs by McDaniel Art and Art History professor Susan Ruddick Bloom. The exhibition runs through Dec. 13, with an opening reception 5:30-7:30 p.m. and an artist talk at 6 p.m. Nov. 21.

Bloom records ephemeral moments and often her search leads her to travel to areas as different as primal swamps filled with alligators, remote villages in central Turkey, glaciers in Iceland and Dutch gardens. These fleeting moments are the subject of the exhibition.

Her love of drawing and painting play a part in her photographic interpretations. Although she has been involved with many mediums, she has concentrated in digital fine art photography for the past 20 years. Her work appears in several private collections and is shown regionally. She is also the author of “Digital Collage and Painting” about the fine art applications of the computer.

Bloom has a Master of Fine Arts degree from Maryland Institute College of Art. More information about Susan Ruddick Bloom can be found at suebloom.com.

The exhibition and reception are both free and open to the public. Rice Gallery hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday from noon-4 p.m.; Thursday, noon-8 p.m. and Saturday, noon-5 p.m. Call 410-857-2595 for more information.
