Ginny Ruffner: What if?

Ginny Ruffner (Seattle) takes us on her unique journey of artmaking, spanning over forty years. Best known for lampworked and painted glass sculptures, Ruffner’s prolific career includes paintings, installations, public art projects, metal and glass sculptures, cast glass, and works activated through augmented reality.

This retrospective debuts Project Aurora, a two-story light show inspired by the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), and the Unperiodic Table, a tapestry enhanced through holographic images.

A companion book to the Ruffner retrospective will be available October 14th in the BIMA Store.
