    And So We March: Defending Women’s Rights in The Trump Age

    The election of Donald Trump as president of the United States in November 2016 brought a feeling of dread to most people, especially women, I know mostly due to his sexist actions and words before and during the campaign. There was a ground-swell of positive reaction to support women, by all genders and ages as can be seen in the Women’s Marches in January 2017 and 2018 in many places around the world. I felt the need to document the forceful and inclusive messages by photographing people with a multitude of signs in moments before the Toronto marches at Queen’s Park in 2017 and at Nathan Phillips Square in 2018. During these times of the #MeToo movement and the backlash from it, it is essential that we see positive exhortations of women’s and people’s rights and the need to protect them.

    Members of the Pomegranate Guild showcase 19 of their textiles pieces in this group show. 

    “…and you shall teach them to your children”

    It began with her son’s Bar Mitzvah, a stamp, and a needlepoint design for the atarah. With limited resources and no Google, Phyllis Spivak asked her sister and friends if they were interested in sharing their love and learning of Judaic arts. After an afternoon of tossing around ideas and cookie recipes, they decided to place an ad in the CJN. Twenty-five people from across the community came together.

    Operating since 1982, the Pomegranate Guild of Judaic Textiles, Toronto continues to offer artists the opportunity to come together, encouraging people of diverse textile-based practice and interests and all skill levels. The mandate was clear: to be inclusive; to research, teach and promote; to provide a space for artists to share and learn, and to appreciate each other's handiwork.
