Wild Cuts

@ Woman Made Gallery

685 N Milwaukee Ave, Chicago, IL 60642

Opening Friday, July 7th, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, August 12th

Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is proud to present the exhibition ‘Wild Cuts,’ an exploration of collage juried by Ruby T. Simultaneously WMG is hosting ‘Reunion II,’ the second of two group exhibitions featuring work by WMG artist members in celebration of WMG’s 25th Anniversary year.

Cutting, pasting, glitching, and bundling, the artworks in ‘Wild Cuts’ collide to produce a twisting and unstable definition of contemporary collage intersecting around themes of grief and healing, slippery cultural identities, and fraught interactions with the natural world.

‘Wild Cuts’ includes 22 artists working across a variety of disciplines: Nadine Abdelrahim, Julia Arredondo, Heather Beardsley, Colby Beutel, Rachel Davis, Françoise Soulé Duressé, Kathie Foley-Meyer, Rebecca Griffith, Jennifer Koehler, Verneda Lights, Monica Martinez, Jeffly Gabriela Molina, Liz Moretti, Danielle O’Brien, Naomi Powers, Coral Pereda Serras, Hannah Mitsu Shimabukuro, Anna Showers-Cruser, Eva Skye, Madeline Vaccaro, Kelly Xintaris, and Leyi Yan.

Juror, Ruby T is an artist based in Chicago. Her work is an experiment in translating fantasy to reality, and she is fueled by anger, desire, and magic. Ruby graduated in 2016 with an MFA from SAIC, and has shown work at Chicago venues including the Back Room at Kim’s Corner Foods, Ballroom Projects, Hyde Park Art Center, ACRE, EXPO, Roman Susan, Chicago Filmmakers, Chicago Alternative Comics Expo, Woman Made Gallery, and Plaines Project, with a forthcoming two-person exhibition at Roots & Culture in Chicago
