Bridgette Mayer Gallery is pleased to announce Rebecca Rutstein's solo exhibition "Zero Gravity" at Sylvia White Gallery in Ventura, CA. The exhibition will run September 14 - October 15, 2011. In this latest body of work, Rutstein shifts her perspective from the deep ocean to deep space, in an exploration of imagined topographies and physical environments, which convey the undercurrents and forces that continually shape and reshape our world.
Bridgette Mayer Gallery recently completed a large-scale, commissioned mural project in the Alter Hall MBA Commons at Temple University's Fox School of Business. Dean Moshe Porat wished to fill the empty walls in this large gathering space with depictions of landmarks in cities and regions where the Fox School has a satellite business program or vested cultural interest.
In 2009-2010, Bridgette Mayer Gallery placed over 200 original artworks by 27 artists throughout Alter Hall at Temple University's Fox School of Business. On the occasion of the University's Art Collection Dedication on October 13, 2010, the Gallery produced a fully illustrated catalogue of the artworks in the Collection. Please contact the gallery for information on purchasing a copy of the catalogue.
The Painting Center is pleased to present Shifting Speeds, an exhibition of recent paintings by Arden Bendler Browning, Rebecca Rutstein, and Charles Burwell, highly regarded artists who prompt us to reflect upon the elasticity of time, space, and perception. In varying ways, these artists explore multi-layered approaches to painting, from the use of screen-printing, templates, and overlapping transparencies, to combinations of broad strokes, evolving patterns, or precise detail.

This commissioned mural by artist and Cynwyd alumna, Rebecca Rutstein, adorns the walls of Cynwyd Elementary School’s Library Makerspace. Synergy was inspired by Rutstein's ocean exploration and collaboration with scientists researching chemical and microbial processes in the deep sea. During the project, she gave talks and shared experiences about her deep-sea dives and the intersection of art and science with the students. Children in Grades K-5, along with several staff members, contributed to the creation of this mural.
The Bridgette Mayer Gallery is pleased to announce gallery artist Rebecca Rutstein’s upcoming creation of a 63 x 100-foot mural, “Convergence”, that will adorn the walls of the AT&T building along the banks of the Schuylkill River.
Rutstein is partnering with Mural Arts Philadelphia, the Bridgette Mayer Gallery, and AT&T, in creating this large-scale mural. The mural will be seen from the Schuylkill River Trail and Banks Boardwalk, the Schuylkill Expressway, and beyond into West Philadelphia.
Whether strolling on the boardwalk, cruising down I-76 or racing in a kayak, passersby along the Schuylkill River at South Street will now be welcomed with a kaleidoscopic piece of public art.
Unfurled across three walls on the AT&T building, “Convergence,” a new mural unveiled last week, has been woven into the Schuylkill cityscape just beside the South Street Bridge.
The nearly 3-year-old project of Mural Arts Philadelphia was the vision of Philadelphia-based artist Rebecca Rutstein, whose array of mediums works to highlight facets of science and technology.
A few years ago, Rebecca Rutstein GFA’97 stood on the roof of Philadelphia’s fortress-like AT&T Building, a red-brick behemoth that rises seven stories above the east bank of the Schuylkill River, and surveyed her surroundings. The artist took in the gleaming glass towers of University City and Center City, the tangle of highways and bridges, and the Schuylkill’s gentle bends.
This summer the building’s river-facing blank brick façade became the canvas for a 7,800-square-foot diptych mural Rutstein titled Convergence. The first part, an orderly composition of vividly hued polygons (astute observers will spot echoes of the lime and raspberry tones that appear in nearby graffiti), is inspired by the offerings of fruits and flowers that are tossed into the river during Philadelphia’s African American Odunde street festival. The second part, all moody blues and grays, is an abstraction of the water currents and the criss-crossing roads.
Rebecca Rutstein always loved art as a child and wanted to be an artist when she grew up, but she didn’t believe it was an option until her father encouraged her to pursue her passions when she was applying to college. It was at Cornell University, where Rutstein earned an undergraduate degree in art, that she took a “rock for jocks” class to fulfill distribution requirements and fell in love with geology.
