Pittsburgh Photographer Ruth E Hendricks has been photographing people at work for the past several years. Two years ago, gallery owner Mark Panza invited her to show her People at Work. He followed Ruth’s daily blog and enjoyed seeing the People at Work series.
This July 2018 she will have a solo show at Panza Gallery, featuring 60 portraits of People at Work. A retired Pittsburgh Public Schools Visual Arts and Photography teacher, she showed the photographs to students so they could see a variety of job possibilities. Students’ awareness increased seeing that there are jobs where people bake cookies, change tires, capture squirrels and sell bicycles to name a few.
Named Best New Artist at PERSAD Art For Change in 2008 , Ruth also received first place in the Downtown Living Exposed Exhibition. Best Color Photography in Bucks Gallery of Fine Art, Best Regional Work in The Pittsburgh Technology Council 15 Minute Gallery Exhibition, and was a finalist in the Photographer’s Forum Magazine 29th Annual Spring Photography Contest.
Her photographs have been shown in New Orleans Photo Alliance– New Orleans LA, Center for Fine Art Photography- Fort Collins CO, 1650 Gallery– Los Angeles CA, Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center-Ft, Myers FL and A. Smith Gallery-Johnson City TX, Sirani Gallery – Pittsburgh PA. Her images have been shown at Pittsburgh’s Silver Eye Center of Photography in The Looking Glass Exhibition and Self Portrait Silver Eye at 30 shows.
Pittsburgh Photographer, Ruth E. Hendricks, upcoming solo show- People at Work; Primarily Pittsburgh will be shown the month of July at Panza Gallery, 115 Sedgwick Street, Millvale PA 15209

I forget how we found one another in the blogging community. But I am so glad we did.
