Woman Made changed my life! It was a pivotal moment in my life when I found Beate and the gallery and I was so affected by the positive energy and respect she and the gallery shows for women artists. My involvement with the gallery generated professional accolades for me and I, in turn, was inspired to give back. The little storefront on the Northside that turned into a big storefront in the West Loop in Chicago is a vortex for women who need a boost of power. Really, the power is contagious and makes you be a better artist and challenges and refines your thinking. And it's full of great art and lots of fun.

Woman Made continues to work tirelessly to secure women's place in art, society and history through the vision and efforts of its executive director, Beate Minkovski. Though the organization has grown enormously over the last 18 years, it retains its original inviting, non-elitist and personal atmosphere. This is Beate's touch and I hope it will alwasy keep this flavor. The art selections are, for the most part, excellent and challenging and the gallery stays true to its mission to bring women artists to the public forefront and to actively educate the public about art. The website is excellent and I often "visit" the exhibitions on line before going to the gallery.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my own creativeoutput, and my own professional development as an artist.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

hire a professional fundraiser that would help them get some serious money in place. The board has struggled over the years to get to a level they need to be at to help grow the gallery. They get too involved in day to day decisions they should not be involved in.

WomanMade Gallery provides a longstanding and very lively exhibition program for women artists, balancing the well dsocumented over-representation of talented men, who are a minority of art students but a majority of artists promoted commercially. With an international following and imaginative compoetitions and theme shows, WomanMade delivers a great variety of talent both from the Chicago area and far afield. Operating with volunteer help on a shoestring budget for many years, WomanMade is deserving of a financial break and makes very good use of every dollar donated or earned. Treatr yourself to a lively world online by visiting their website!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the caliber of art submitted and presented, and the variety of artistic styles encouraged by the gallery.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to find funding to travel their exhibits so more viewers could enjoy them.
