Installing “Uncle Jack” for my show ‘un-Paralleled: The artistic journeys of Bob Hill and Seth Ruggles Hiler’ - the inaugural exhibit at @aimgalleryny Opening Reception- Saturday May 11th 2 - 4 pm. On view through August 25th ! 60 of my paintings from 9 of my series from over the last two decades cover the walls and are joined by the fabulous sculptures of Bob Hill at The Art Institute at Maplebrook (A.I.M.) Maplebrook School 5142 Route 22, Amenia, NY 12501 “Uncle Jack” is the centerpiece for THE RUGGLES PROJECT portion of this exhibition: This long-term exploration is a growing collection of painted, drawn, and printed series exploring the artist’s own ancestry via one very mysterious family member: Jack Ruggles. In 1997, when he was in his late teens, Hiler attended the wake of his great uncle, Jack, a career studio portrait photographer inmid-20th century New York City. Jack was an unknown man with whom Seth Ruggles Hiler shared only a family name. But when the young artist came into possession of a trove of Jack’s photographs and experimental 8mm films, Jack’s life, his art, and his secrets were slowly revealed. The Ruggles Project grows and strengthens a bond between the artist and his ancestor, illuminating hidden memories which strengthen Hiler’s own creative life as a painter, a member of the Ruggles family, and as a fellow gay man. #painting#therugglesproject#1940s#artistsoninstagram#artistofinstagram#contemporaryart#contemporaryartists#oilpainting#gayartist#lgbt#lgbthistory#sethruggleshiler#figurepainting#artshowprep#art#oilpaint#portrait#figurativeart#aboutface#unparallelled#sethruggleshiler#unclejack

Lava Rock is an intense mineral that forms when gasses in magma begin to solidify and harden into rock. These stones are found all around the world and are one of the oldest and most abundant minerals on Earth. Its origins play a key roll in the stone’s healing properties. Lava Rock is famous for its grounding and calming qualities that can teach us about depth, intensity, and change. This stone works well in stabilizing and anchoring the root chakra. When the root chakra is in sync with all other chakras you will begin to feel grounded, safe and secure. This is due to the stone's strong connection with the Earth.

Taking a break from the our animal series to share some literal uplifting imagery. The Moon Balloon continues to be one of my favorites. It reminds me of the movie "Up" just a bit...Have you ever seen it? It's such a favorite of mine, and has the perfect balance of wanderlust, imagination, and finding your way. I keep coming back to these concepts with the moon collection, and I couldn't help sharing the first print in our moon collection. As we're wrapping up our animal series, we're going to be adding more to our moon series and I can't wait to for you to see what we come up with. Both the print and the geometric galaxy gift wrap can be found in our etsy shop (link in bio).⠀
