This month, I received a grant from the Ruth and Harold Chenven Foundation for my American Folk series. It is an honor to have received this grant.
The foundation was created by Harold Chenven in memory of his wife, Ruth Chenven, a silversmith and jewelry designer. The foundation is presently run by a small group of their family and friends.
So, I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to Ruth and Harold Chenven for giving me support to move forward with this project.
