What Does it Mean to Be A Woman explores what it means to be a woman and the struggle to understand all that entails through an exhibition of paintings and video by Ruth Chase. What Does it Mean to Be A Woman was created to be approachable and accessible to all women, reevaluating the roles women have resisted and submitted to and how women see themselves in today’s challenging times—highlighting the wisdom women embody beyond limited role models.

I struggle with the notion of what a woman is. 

Ruth creates large intimate paintings inspired by images and content that women have submitted and from selfies that her daughter has taken.

“She Finds Her Way” will be exhibited at the Crocker Kingsley through the end of February, 2021.

Through the West of Lincoln Project I have been able to remember the amazing chapter in my life that is the formative time for who I am now.
You have reignited my deep passion for painting and renewed the value of it in my life.

I had no idea that having a portrait portraying my life growing up in Venice would be such a powerful, healing and spiritual experience.

Thank you my Venice Sister! You have a awakened a pride in me that I haven’t felt in a long time regarding our hometown of Venice.

Working on the West of Lincoln Project I learned that my strength comes from remembering who I was as a little girl growing up in Venice, Ca..  Having lived a less then perfect childhood I found that my innocence made me brave and strong.
