Ronald R. Russell is a master draftsman. His body of work includes varied themes, such as the American circus, the Tarot, and animals in flight. He is best known for his ongoing series of baseball imagery, illustrating the myriad food terms used in the game over the past 100 years. This remains some of his strongest work.
Russell grew up on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and moved to Baltimore at age 17 to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art. After completing his undergraduate degree, he attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio, earning his M.F.A. and M.A. in graphic design and art history.
Russell co-founded the infamous annual Foodscape show in Baltimore’s equally infamous Mount Royal Tavern. The show began as a tongue-in-cheek response to the early Artscape celebrations in which local artists were under-represented and there seemed to be more food than art. After 35 years, Foodscape held its final exhibition, Check Please, in 2022. True to its reputation, it showcased some of the finest art found in the city.Learn More
