CINCINNATI, OH (FOX 19) - The Ursulines of Brown County and Chatfield College is inviting the public to an art reception where renowned wildlife artist John Ruthven will present his newest commissioned work: Winter Flight – Sacred Heart Chapel (circa 1885).

The painting is an acrylic on canvas featuring native Ohio cardinals flying in front of the beautiful Sacred Heart Chapel on the grounds of the Ursulines of Brown County adjacent to Chatfield College.

"Chatfield College and the Ursulines are honored to have the opportunity to celebrate John Ruthven's inimitable wildlife work with a painting that features the chapel and our campus," said Agatha Fitzgerald, OSU, Faculty member and Alumni Association Advisor for Chatfield College.

The reception, hosted by Baylis/Pacetti/Taylor Wealth Management, is free and open to the public. However, reservations are required. Complimentary beer, wine, and hors d'oeuvres will be served. The reception will be held on March 27th at 1pm, at UBS Financial Services, located at 8044 Montgomery Road, Cincinnati, OH.

The original painting will be auctioned off at 2 p.m. A limited number of remarques will also be available for purchase, as well as other works by John Ruthven. Only 250 signed and numbered giclee' prints will ever be produced of this limited edition work, and all proceeds benefit the Ursulines of Brown County and Chatfield College.

John A. Ruthven, naturalist, author, lecturer, and internationally acknowledged master of wildlife art is often called the "20th Century Audubon." His paintings have been included in acclaimed exhibitions such as The Artist of America Exhibition in Denver, Colorado and the Society of Animal Artist, a traveling museum exhibition included at the Hiram Blauvelt Art Museum in Oradell, New Jersey.
