Artist Rita Maas

Rita Maas



American, b. 1956   —   Rita Maas is a visual artist whose conceptually based works playfully constructs imagery blending photography, drawing and printmaking in her processes. Her work often takes on reductive forms as she explores the gap between abstract and representational depiction. Embracing elements of chance and disorder, she allows her materials and processes to speak for themselves while working within predetermined systems. 
Born in New York, Maas received her BFA in Photographic Studies from the School of Visual Arts. She later earned her MFA in Visual Arts at Lesley University College of Art and Design. Maas has acted as Visiting Professor at Rochester Institute of Technology and served as Visiting Artist and Adjunct Professor at College of Staten Island, CUNY.  Maas was recently named a Finalist in The Print Center International 95th Annual and currently has work included in the exhibit "Fit To Print" at The Print Center in Philadelphia, PA. Maas’ work has been featured in a three-person exhibit at Filter Photo in Chicago IL, “Imprints & Abstractions” (2019) as well as in the annual FRESH exhibit at Klomp Ching Gallery in Brooklyn, NY (2019). Her work is included in the collections of the Museum of Fine Art Houston, The Creative Center of Photography in Tucson AZ and The Griffin Museum of Photography in Winchester, MA. The INFOCUS Sidney Zuber Photography Award awarded her an Honorable Mention in 2017 has been cited as “One of the Ten Most Exciting Photographers I Learned about Last Year” by curator Rebecca Senf. 

Maas currently lives and works in Westchester, NY. 25% of the proceeds from the sale of all works will be donated to CityHarvest NYC to help those facing food insecurities.
