Current Exhibition: Ruth Chase: West of Lincoln: August 5–September 10, 2017 | Venice Arts presents Painter Ruth Chase’s first solo exhibition, The West of Lincoln Project. Awarded a grant by the Carl Jacobs Foundation, the project traces the history of Venice through the life stories of people who grew up here, as told through large-scale paintings and audio interviews by Chase, and accompanying biographical texts written by Gena Lasko. The exhibition is a chance for Venetians—both longtime residents and newcomers—to reflect on the history of our unique community as told through personal stories.

The project was more than two years in the making and involved over 300 participants, each of whom was chosen to convey different perspectives and a broad spectrum of experiences. Like Chase, these subjects grew up and attended school in Venice. Chase worked in ongoing collaboration with each individual to create painted portraits reflecting both the subject’s life growing up in Venice and the powerful insights that arose from this place. Featured portraits include: Fernando Manzanilla, Rhonda Lynn Wise, Solo Scott, Brad James, Meta Zimmerman, Gloria Olivas Omar, David Fowler, Elaine Love Leslie, Eddie Hadvina, Leonard Duran, and Ruth Chase.

In addition to the paintings and audio, the exhibition will feature a Venice Tribute Wall, where the public is invited to contribute their own stories and memories of Venice.

Closing Reception: Sunday, September 10, 10am–12pm. At 10:30, Ruth Chase will be giving a brief talk about how the West of Lincoln Project happened and what it means to use art for positive social change. Following Ruth will be available for any questions about the work

Gallery hours: Monday–Friday, 10am-6pm, Saturdays (except August 19) 9–5pm, and by appointment.
