My name is Ruth Chase, I live in Northern California and was born and raised in VENICE, CA. I started out as an oil painter that has evolved into a filmmaker, creating multi-media installations that include paintings, audio, social media, slideshows, video, and social engagement. My focus is on positive social change, working with concepts that reflect the identity and the value of people.

“You are turning being a member of our town into an art. I can’t wait to see the progress and participate in BELONGING. This is one of my favorite ways of belonging here!!
“The West of Lincoln Project has given me the inspiration to continue working on the book I’ve been writing about the women in my family, “Amazon Women of The South”
“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. I love Venice”
“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. She is my hero”
“The BELONGING project gives a voice and perspective of the Nisenan Indians, the Native Americans who were here for countless generations before the California gold rush. This project will help raise visibility and awareness of the Nevada City Rancheria Nisenan Tribe”
