Doctor or Patients by Artist Ruth Owens

Estimated Value $4200


Ruth Owens was born in 1959 by a young German woman and a black serviceman from Georgia. The nomadic military lifestyle of her childhood was complicated by restrictions to families in many communities and laid the basis for the formation of her cultural identity and therefore, her artistic practice.


Ruth Owens graduated in 2018 with an MFA from the University of New Orleans after her medical practice of 25 years. She is represented by Jonathan Ferrara Gallery and belongs to the artist collectives: A.I.R Gallery in Brooklyn and “The Front” in New Orleans.
