The exhibition Richard Ritter: 40 Years of Glass exhibition was co-organized by the Toe River Arts Council and the Fine Art Museum, Western Carolina University in collaboration with Richard and Jan Ritter.

Richard Ritter has been an active participant in the Studio Art Glass Movement for over 40 years and a vital part of the North Carolina art scene for the past three decades. While Ritter’s work is rooted in North Carolina, his collectors span the region, country and globe, and his art is in dozens of museum and private collections around the world. The online auction, in conjunction with 40 Years of Glass provides exposure and access to his work for the widest possible audience.

For 35 years Green Hill Center for NC Art has been dedicated to the promotion of North Carolina art and artists. Through solo and group exhibitions, artist talks, curator tours and educational programs Green Hill Center has become a well-established resource for artists, art educators and art enthusiasts. The addition of the online auction extends the reach of the exhibition beyond the boundaries of Green Hill Center’s Gallery, and creates valuable opportunities for both the artist and the public.
