Pérez Art Museum Miami Acquires Ruth Dealy Seminal PaintingPérez Art Museum Miami Acquires Ruth Dealy Seminal Painting
by BWW News Desk - May 12, 2015

Yellow Peril Gallery is pleased to announce that Pérez Art Museum Miami recently acquired 'Morning After,' an early painting by internationally known painter Ruth Dealy, a Providence-based artist for nearly five decades. Dealy is one of a group of Rhode Island artists - including Harry Callahan, Stephan Brigidi, Richard Fleishner, Malcolm Grear, Bunny Harvey, Aaron Siskind, Hugh Townley, and Dale Chihuly - who became known as The Rhode Island School based on their emergence in the 1970s as artists from Rhode Island School of Design. The acquisition was made possible by a generous gift from Dr. William and Nancy Tsiaras. Dealy recently commented on 'Morning After': I painted 'Morning After' when I was twenty-seven years old. I had a studio over a bar, and the music played into the night. Although the title might be taken to refer to waking up after the end of a relationship or a night of drinking, I was referring to growing up. I was truly leaving my younger identity to walk the long and (I was afraid) lonely road of the artist. Now, forty-one years later, I am so grateful for that moment, and it still resonates as if it were today. That awakening has led me on a long walk through a dense woods to an opening in the field. About Ruth Dealy Ruth Dealy is an artist who has lived and worked in Providence, Rhode Island for 48 years. A recipient of several grants and awards, including the coveted Pell Award for Excellence in the Arts, Dealy is interested in the tension between what is seen and what is felt. Her paintings, both self-portraits and landscapes, are 'meditations on ways of seeing and reproducing that seeing, not exactly, but honestly.' For more information about Ruth Dealy, visit ruthdealy.com. About Pérez Art Museum Miami Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) promotes artistic expression and the exchange of ideas, advancing public knowledge and appreciation of art, architecture, and design, and reflecting the diverse community of its pivotal geographic location at the crossroads of the Americas.
