Oregon Art Beat

Encaustic Painter Ruth Grover

Ruth Grover was the force responsible for bringing the difficult encaustic method of painting back to the world. Although the process has been around since the First Century BC, it had become a lost art until she began her work in the 1960s. Art Beat talks to the feisty painter and shows never before seen footage of her at work in the mid-1970s.
