* Ruth Chase by Dee Anne Dinelli 2017
Generously funded in part by California Arts Council through its Artists Activating Communities Program.

In the year to come, artist Ruth Chase (that’s me) will lead an artist-in-residence with Nevada County Arts for a new initiative called Belonging. Belonging is a community art program that centers around our vulnerable mountain home and the people who tend it, love it and depend on it in Nevada County, CA.

 

BELONGING PROJECT BROKEN DOWN

  • Artist Ruth Chase, thats me, will interview featured community members about how they connect with nature, the land, and our community.
  • In the end I will produce paintings that share the insight taken from this site and the interviews about what it means to belong.
  • A short film about this journey will be produced.
  • The use of social media will inform this project. How YOU contribute on the Facebook group page will have an effect on the outcome of the paintings and short film.
  • YOU will be invited to participate in opportunities such as workshops.
  • An exhibition will share the results of this entire project, BELONGING, a collaboration with Nevada County and thankfully …… YOU.

BEGINS this JUNE in Nevada County
