Broad Changes: Women of Social Justice" & Trish Williams


Greetings All,
My piece "Harriett's Gone Up Yonder" will be a part of  "Broad Changes: Women of Social Justice" art quilt exhibition.  An Exhibition featuring 25 original artworks from an international fiber artist group, Fiber Artists for Hope.

August 16th- September 15th, 2013...
Opening Reception: Friday August 16th, 6-10PM Chicago, IL—The HumanThread Center at the Bridgeport Art Center proudly presents the work of The Fiber Artists for Hope in its next exhibition, Broad Changes: Women of Social Justice. The Fiber Artists for Hope (FAH) is a diverse group of artists representing all aspects of the human experience including race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age, and nationality committed to creating fiber art that addresses today's social issues, promoting dialogue for change, and fostering understanding.

Exhibition Concept: The word "broad" is a feisty reference to women; when combined with "changes," it implies a double meaning, since broad can mean big. This term used in our title aligns with the definition from Womanwords: A Dictionary of Words about Women (1985) by feminist Jane Mills, where she defines BROAD as, "a woman who is liberal, tolerant, unconfined and not limited or narrow in scope."

Opening Night Reception: Bridgeport Art Center, Friday August 16th, 6-10pm.

BAC: 1200 W. 35th Street, Chicago, IL 60609 (Enter on North Side off of Racine/34th).

There is a parking lot next to the building. Exhibition will be on the 5th floor. This is in conjunction with Bridgeport’s 3rd Friday opening receptions, including several other art openings and open studio tour.
