The need to convey data, statistics, and territory in a creative manner is a challenge embraced by artists who have used data abstractions—including maps, charts, and diagrams—as the basis for their work. Artists in this exhibition explore how visual representation of information can manifest not only the literal and calculable, but also the intangible, inestimable, and subjective.

Gail Mitchell began making quilts for her children from articles of cast off clothing. She soon began to incorporate photo transfers into her quilts, documenting historical events and honoring the accomplishments of African American artists, authors, poets, academics, and politicians. She writes, “Americans need to remember and to be reminded that African American history is American history.”
Mitchell’s work has been exhibited at institutions of higher education across New Jersey and at the Newark Museum. Mitchell is a retired educator and teacher of English as a second language.
