Linda Ridgway: Intimate Castings of Experience

Linda Ridgway decided to work in bronze 20 years ago, adding her printmaker’s point of view to an age-old medium. She has exhibited widely since 1974, with solo exhibitions at the Dallas Museum of Art, the Glassell School of Art at the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, the El Paso Museum of Art, Dunn and Brown Contemporary in Dallas, John Berggruen Gallery in San Francisco, Arthur Roger Gallery in New Orleans, and Charles Cowles Gallery in New York. The 1997 survey exhibition at the Glassell School of Art, which traveled to the Dallas Museum of Art, coincided with a turning point in Ridgway’s career. Celebrating her 50th birthday, she embarked on her most thematically and technically daring decade. Now, as she approaches traditional retirement age, Ridgway is one of the most prolific and recognized artists working in Texas.
