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.

As a professional artist, Woman Made Gallery has provided several juried exhibitions to which I can submit work. Having been accepted into shows at this prestigious location means that I have an out-of-state line on my resume and that lots of people have been exposed to my work who otherwise wouldn't have been.

WMG is providing an open stage to women artist that is very unique in Chicago. The staff is very welcoming, warm and supportive. As an artist, it was the first gallery I approached and I was very encouraged by their passion and commitment to art.
I agree with the other posting that WMG is a
social-service "community" with a mission to serve artists and the general public. They do it very well and we hope to keep them around for many years to come.

Dear Judges,

I am an artist and supporter of the Woman Made Gallery. Recently I showed a few pieces of my work there and the experience was magical.

So many woman are brought together and empowered through this space.

It is one of the strongest artistic pillars in the
country for woman .

I highly recommend WMG for $5,000 prize. They deserve it and so much more.

Warmest Regards,

Jenny Priego
