For over 20 years, WomanMade Gallery has been an advocate for women artists, especially for women just entering the art world. WMG nurtures and supports their dreams and ambitions, through exhibitions, mentoring, advice and connections. Truly one of a kind, and much needed still.

Woman Made Gallery exhibits strong work, including work that deals with difficult topics.

The staff and volunteers are friendly, and one feels at home there.

I am an artist who has exhibited at Woman Made and a volunteer . I donate and have included Woman Made in my
will.

I wish Woman Made had more money so the director and others could be well- salaried to insure the continuation of the Gallery.

Anyone I've ever met who knows Woman Made thinks of the gallery as one of the purest forms of communicating ideas through art. The founder truly understood how to take the most important concepts of society and create events that showcased art that connected to viewers, helping them to formulate their own ideas about important issues. Thankfully this vision has continued. Woman Made is an important component of today's art world.

Woman Made Gallery is such a special gem in the Chicago arts community. The gallery's exhibitions and community and youth programming do much to amplify the artistic voices of women, but also highlights some of the most exciting voices from a myriad of vantage points that are often vulnerable or muted. The work is always innovative and of high quality--WMG has a direct hold on the pulse of emerging contemporary art, and consistently delivers it to the surrounding community. Keep up the fabulous work!

I am an artist and am 67 years old. I am involved with WomanMade Gallery because their mission is to support womyn and their art. This matches my life-long intimate beliefs that our art has been under-appreciated, discounted, discouraged, and swept under the proverbial rug for eons in this (sorry to be cliché and obvious at the same time!) male-dominated society. And that our art is pertinent and needs to be in the forefront -- in public spaces, with public faces! This is what WomanMade strives to do. And I appreciate it so much. It's not "a man's world" at WomanMade -- it's a shared world and it's thriving.

WomanMade is a gutsy gallery for women mostly and it is full of gutsy classy art. They have filled a need in me to show my work in a place where woman and creativity count. I have been in several shows there. I have also been in shows elsewhere in Chicago. I think they are in the mainstream in the art world.

I participated in a group show "Abstractions" at Woman Made Gallery. It was a good experience, there was a good variety of work by artists from all over the country. The reception went well with a lot of people attending. Dropping off my artwork for the show was easy.

I have been affiliated with Woman Made Gallery since their inception. I began visiting the gallery and partaking in drawing and other professional workshops, have exhibited in group and solo shows, have juried exhibits and been part of the advisory board. My experience has been personally and professionally enriching and positive in every way. Some of my favorite events are the poetry readings and artist presentations of their own and other artists' works. Thus WMG has created a history within a history of women's art, and passed it on to new generations through their community outreach.. The relationships formed there have been both challenging and nurturing. I have observed WMG's growth, tireless commitment and laser focus on women in the arts. Their outreach and programming has been stellar. The gallery continues to stay contemporary and even occasionally visionary.
As it has been for me, WMG has provided countless opportunities for networking, showcasing, presenting work and gaining professionalism to many artists and supporters.

The Great!
