Featured: Maggi Rhudy

This week we are featuring Maggi Rhudy. Maggi will be displaying her art in the Citizens Bank of WV lobby in Elkins in the first month of this partnered project. ArtSpring, Inc. will also be displaying in the lobby of the Citizens Bank in Parsons.

After immigrating to the USA from Germany, Maggi received a BA in Art,  and an MA in German Literature from the University of Toledo, Ohio, and she is certified to teach both subjects. Maggi has taught both German and art to students 5 years to 75 years old.

“In Randolph County, where I have lived since 1984, I was ArtsBank Teaching Artist and also ArtsBank Coordinator, Elementary Art teacher, and for seven years taught art at Elkins High School until I retired in 2005.I am now active as an artist and occasional art teacher, as well as volunteer for ArtsBank and the Randolph County Community Arts Center.  I love including nature in my artwork, as subject matter or as natural materials I use to make my artwork.”

Check out Maggi’s work anytime this month during Citizen’s Bank lobby hours – see their sponsor page for details: www.madwv.com/item/citizens-bank-of-west-virginia/

And see her page for more of her work and where to find it! Maggi Rhudy
