CHICAGO — Woman Made Gallery ( WMG ) is pleased to present 'Quilt + Resist: Art, Politics, Storytelling,' an exhibition juried by Marcia Grubb and Adelia Moore. The history/herstory of quilts spans domestic, political, artistic, religious and economic spheres. What forms do quilts take in 2018? What materials are used in this era of excess? What stories surface again and again? And who is telling them in quilts? Thirty-eight women working in a variety of media have been included in this exhibition.

On view are two and three-dimensional pieces in traditional and non-traditional format by Linda Anderson; Lisa Marie Barber; Ann Berg; Leland Burnham; Patricia Darif; Melanie Deal; Mary Jo Deysach; Karen Duling; Kim Fox; Helen Geglio; Laura Hartrich; Sharon Havelka; Sylvia Hernandez; Marilyn Hrymak; Jacqueline Hughes; Kandi Jamieson; Dong Kyu Kim; Judy Kirpich; Paula Kovarik; Kristin La Flamme; Viviana Lombrozo; Ruth Marchese; Penny Mateer; Deirdre McConathy; Amy Meissner; Kathy Nida; Do Palma; Cecelia Pedescleaux; Laura Petrovich-Cheney; Susan Redeker; Mary Ritter; Eliza Scott; Sandy Shelenberger; Jessica Skultety; Dorothy Straughter; Susan Wei; Laura Wennstrom; and Chandra Wu.

About the Jurors: Marcia Grubb and Adelia Moore

Marcia Grubb received her BFA from the University of Wisconsin, and her MFA from the School of the Art Institute Chicago. She taught art for many years and has exhibited her work widely. Her work is in private and public permanent collections. Marcia Grubb's focus has always been subject matter dealing with highly charged political issues that has often sparked controversy. She has mentored women and Feminist artists throughout her career, is a strong supporter of WMG since 1994, and serves on its Board of Directors.

Adelia Moore is a psychologist, political activist, quilt maker, folk artist and writer. She was an early member of the Evanston, Illinois "Stitch 'n' Bitch" quilting group and the founder of "Quilters' Triangle" in Pittsburgh. Her quilts appeared in Quilters Newsletter in the late 70s and she was featured as a "neighbor" on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood in 1980. Adelia Moore has made, collected and appreciated the work of women quilt makers for over 40 years. Her book, "Being the Grownup: The Natural Authority of Parents," will be published in 2018, and she is writing a children's book which she will illustrate in felt and fabric.
