Ronnie Rysz

Ronnie received his BFA from Lyme Academy College of Fine Art and studied Fine Art and Illustration at the School of Visual Arts. He served as an assistant to both Master Printer James Reed of Milestone Graphics and to Mural Painter Randy Davis of Off the Wall Murals. He has taught relief printing, intaglio, and lithography at Western Connecticut State University and relief printing at the Center for Contemporary Printmaking—where he was also an exhibition and programming associate. He spent six years working as a Prosthetic Artist for Alternative Prosthetic Services—traveled across the continental U.S. to create custom silicone prosthetics for civilian and soldier alike.

Ronnie’s artwork is included in collection of the Slater Memorial Museum, the Housatonic Museum of Art, the Print Club of Albany, and several other public and private collections. His work has been exhibited nationally, including shows at Real Art Ways, Silvermine Arts Center, 808 Gallery at Boston University, Artspace NH, Seton Gallery at University of New Haven, and the Akus Gallery at Eastern Connecticut State University. He was the recipient of a Connecticut Commission on Culture and Tourism Fellowship, Change, Inc. Grant, and Vermont Studio Center Fellowship. Currently, he lives and works in New Haven, CT.
