Bonnie MacAllister

Is being featured on the International Museum of Women (San Francisco)'s site for activism and art.  Hope you'll take a look.

Here's what the museum says about her in the exhibition, Imagining Equality: 

"In this series, multimedia artist Bonnie MacAllister conflates photographs of women on the international stage, such as vigilante activists like Riot Girl, to the women in her own life to create embroidered works that she calls "riart"--art as riot, or revolution."

Artist Spotlight- Michelle Frazier                            Featured Artist in the Fall Edition of DomiCile Magazine pgs. 40-42.

The theme is based on the work of feminist Miriam Schapiro. Influenced by the feminist movement of the early 1970s, she changed her style radically, embracing the use of textiles as symbolic of feminine labor. 
Schapiro developed a method of collage, assemblage and painting that
used found or saved material relating to women's lives and traditionally 
female skills such as embroidery and quilting, calling it "femmage"

Juried by Lisa Melandri, Executive Director of the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis (CAM).  Prior to joining CAM, Melandri served as the 
Deputy Director for Exhibitions and Programs at the Santa Monica Museum of Art, where she curated a number of notable exhibitions and oversaw programming of the Project Room, a dynamic exhibition series at the museum featuring national and international emerging artists.

This is one of the oldest running biennial exhibitions that focus on the work of women artists in the Midwest ( circa 1977 ). This exhibition is open to all women and women-identified artists in the US and abroad.
