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.

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.

Beautiful work Ruth! It’s so awesome that there are people like you that grew up in Venice and want to help share the history and stories of this place, Venice.

The West of Lincoln painting series pays tribute to a population of people who shaped the history of an untamed community, while preserving their historic significance.

I relate to the wolf because of its strength, speed, and because me and my brothers were raised like a wolf pack in Dogtown. Quote from the West of Lincoln Project

Everybody earns a second chance just like Eddie Hadvina in West of Lincoln Project.
