This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Ruth DeWitt Hogan may have grown up in Texas, far from Cape Cod, but Cape Cod artistry was in her genes.  Her great aunt, Elizabeth Howland Caliga, was one of the original Provincetown Printmakers and Ruth Hogan spent many of her childhood summers in the fifties and sixties visiting her and her prominent portrait artist husband, Henry Caliga, in the well-known artists' colony, Provincetown.  It was there among the magnificent rolling dunes, the encompassing blue-green Atlantic and the plethora of multi-hued flowers set amidst the town's pastel-colored houses that her life-long absorption with color and light was born.

Although Ruth considers herself a self-taught artist primarily interested in landscape painting-in the style of American Impressionism-she is always eager to learn and absorb from others.  Her friend and mentor, Robert Douglas Hunter, a prominent Boston artist, led her to the out of doors and instructed her on how to view nature.  From Tim Thies, a classically trained artist now living in Vermont, she expanded her knowledge of the various techniques utilized in painting.  On-going workshops broadened her talents further.

"I paint in my own language, letting my own style emerge," she has said.  "There is a certain "je ne sais quoi" that moves me to choose my subject matter": a splash of light in a garden, the reflected glow of the sun at low tide on the beach.  Whatever is beautiful to my eye".  Her paintings abound with brilliant-unexpected-splashes of color and light. "I do not want to reproduce nature. I want to utilize my creative intelligence and extend my work beyond the literal, visual experience."

Ruth works in pastel, also and is enthusiastic about the immediacy of their layering ability. She attended a pastel workshop recently with Albert Handel, a master pastelist from Santa Fe, and feels that he has inspired her to grow in yet another direction.  She stresses how vital it is to pursue new techniques as well as methods of observing nature. An Impressionist painter, she reminds us, is focused on the appearance of nature and, in transferring it to canvas, or interpreting it, attempts to reproduce the totality of its look by marrying each and every part in a relationship to the complete-and complex-visual experience.  Ruth has worked on Monhegan Island, Maine, with Don Stone, a noted teacher of oil painting.  She believes in continuous study because as Robert Henri said-"seek technical excellence so you may bring alive the wonder of this stupendous universe".

Ruth Hogan"s paintings have won many awards and are found in collections worldwide. Most recently her painting, "Spring Along Main Street", was chosen for the 1997 Orleans Bicentennial poster and another, "Old Town Hall", was reproduced on the cover of the Orleans Information Guide booklet.  In the past year, Ruth has had an exhibition of her works at The Danforth Museum, Framingham, Massachusetts and the Snow Library, Orleans, Massachusetts.  Works by Ruth Hogan can be found in the permanent collections of the Cape Museum of Art, the Provincetown Art Association and Museum, and the Meadow Brook Art Gallery, Oakland University, Rochester, Michigan. Every fall Ruth joins a group of women artists, "21 in Truro", for a week of painting. Ruth Hogan was selected as a member of the Pastel Society of America and is a member of the Pastel Society of Cape Cod.  She is one of a few active white-line  woodcut printers.
