In 1917, Muth lived in New York City and established an art studio on 8th Street in the heart of Greenwich Village. She returned to Ohio for the Christmas season bringing with her examples of Batik she had created in her New York City studio. The Batik work included decorative objects, household necessities and apparel. Muth herself wore one of her designs,described in the Cincinnati Enquirer as an“exquisite fabric dyed in tones of greens, browns and yellows.” Described as a “landscape artist of New York,” Muth exhibited her paintings at the MacDowell Club, as well as the Catherine Lorillard Wolf Club in New York, where she was awarded the 1918 landscape prize for “A Windy Day” and an honorable mention from the Architectural League and the Art Alliance of America.
