WMG Call for Art for Two Exhibitions

Language of the Voiceless
Art Inspired by, and in Memoriam to Artist Nancy Hild
Exhibition Dates: September 28 – October 20, 2018
Final Entry Due Date: July 21 , 2018
Juror: Jeramy Turner

https://womanmadegallery.submittable.com/submit 

Nancy’s world was one of secrets: secret symbolism, hidden drawers, compartments within compartments, an anger and intense strength that was shielded behind floral arrangements, chicken feathers, pug dogs, and a gently scathing humor….but upon closer scrutiny these pleasantries were often plastic.  Blow up toys, easily punctured, and vulnerable in their inertness.

Nancy exposed her anger at a world that trampled upon women and animals with equal nonchalance, and she did so by creating a silent language of detail and quietude, submerging her figures in the silence of black velvet encasement.

In homage to this otherworldly artist, Woman Made Gallery is asking for art that emotes that which cannot be put into words: women’s anger, women’s sadness, women speaking to each other in tongues only they can understand.  And animals, as representations of vulnerability and simultaneous resilience.  This is a call for art of emotion, above all…..a call for the expression of voicelessness

The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver:[email protected]. All applicants should submit an artist’s statement about their body of work. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG.

About the Juror: Jeramy Turner

Jeramy Turner’s primary concern has been for many years the use of art and film to expand consciousness and foment the questioning everything. She wants art to shatter complacency, to disturb and delight viewers and to send them home with a new way of seeing the world.

Turner is a self-taught artist, whose paintings are most often depictions of capitalists’ vulnerability.  She has also a long history of running alternative cinemas, mostly in Chicago. She established the international radical feminist art collective, “SisterSerpents” in 1989, which Jesse Helmes decried as a “hate group” against unborn children. Turner has taught and lectured on the conjuncture of political involvement in art and feminism at numerous universities and institutions in the US (Chicago, Boulder, Jersey City,Cornell).  Her work has been exhibited in London, Berlin, Vienna, Stockholm, Hamburg, Bergen, Norway, and at many alternative and university galleries throughout the US.  Her work is represented in Vienna with Treadwell Galerie, and in New York with Limner Gallery.

Quilt + Resist: Art, Politics, Storytelling
Exhibition Dates: November 9 – December 1, 2018
Entry Due Date: August 31 , 2018
Jurors: Marcia Grubb and Adelia Moore

https://womanmadegallery.submittable.com/submit 

Quilting covers so much ground.  As comfort, resistance, community, chronicle, mystery, banner, beauty.  The act of stitching, piecing, fragments into story.  Or pattern.  Or proclamation.

The history/herstory of quilts spans domestic, political, artistic, religious and economic spheres.  Only fitting that quilting collects pieces from each of these realms, arranges and overlaps, then binds them together, to tell a more complete story and create a vibrant picture of our tangled world.

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?

Woman Made Gallery seeks quilt work by artists of all stripes.  Open to work whether pictorial or abstract, story or symbol, political, personal, or any combination.

The application fee for our juried exhibitions is $30 for up to three images of work, plus one detail image if necessary. A limited number of artists who experience financial hardship may be exempt from paying the entry fee; please send us an email to request a fee waiver:[email protected]. All applicants should submit an artist’s statement about their body of work. Accepted artworks must not exceed 72″ horizontally and must not have been previously shown at WMG.

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. Adelica 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.
