Broad Changes: Women of Social Justice exhibition and Fiber Artists for Hope

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.


HumanThread is a non-profit organization that seeks to popularize a Culture of Peace and non-violence through educational, artistic and cultural programs and events focused on youth. Celebrating a culture of peace, HumanThread expresses Chicago’s creative culture by curating monthly exhibitions that discuss issues of cultural identity and social importance.

Update - SLO Jazz Festival

Greetings All,
I got this email and thought that I would share it with you.

"Hi Trish,
I found the image for your International Textile. Great work! I love it.  I'm creating a new website for SLO Jazz Festival, and would like to request permission to use your image for a page on our site relating to Jazz Conversations - a new series of talks relating to our new education program. Would you be willing to let us share this artwork and spread knowledge of your work to California? We can include an artist mention on the page where we feature the graphic - of course want to give you
proper credit".
Well I did check him out and found out that this was legit and so I went ahead and gave them permission to use the image.  I love jazz and thought why not?  I asked what international textile site he found my work on and was pleasantly surprised when he said Fiber Artists Coalition.  I have gotten more exposure being member of this group than any of the others that I belong to and just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to be a part of it and we got international status in some one's eye.
