    Louise Fishman (United States, 1939-2021) was an established artist known for her ambivalent engagement with male-centered abstract painting traditions. Her physical and process-driven work remakes the abstract expressionist gesture and the minimalist grid into tools that communicate history and emotion centered in her identities as Jewish, feminist, and lesbian.

    A new exhibit, "Sewn in Memory," features over a dozen quilt panels originally made in the 1980s and early '90s for the National AIDS Memorial Quilt, in Washington, DC. Each of the panels commemorates a person who died of AIDS, or of an AIDS-related ailment. Created with Greater Community AIDS Project of Central Illinois (GCAP).
