This seems like a wonderful much needed group. I would like to join and volunteer. My life has had some testing struggles. With the help from awesome women that volunteer their time and knowledge.
I am getting back on track and my passion is in arts. Writing, drawing and painting mostly. My
heart would love to be involved and donate my time in any way. Thank you. B. Hartman

WMG is a wonderful organization that supports women in their creativity. Their shows push the envelope with innovative quality work. They're open-minded about new concepts and their gallery is a great place to pick up a little gift that the recipient won't find anywhere else. The fact that they have been around as long as they have, especially in our economy and put-art-on-a-back burner culture, is a tribute to the quality of their shows and staff.

What a great space for women to thrive. Nice to see the art. Shame they do not have more room.

Hello Beate, I sold my first painting in a gallery when you were on Prairie Avenue. I took a friend to the gallery, and she said "You have a red dot on your painting, what does that mean?" I asked. It was sold. Who Knew. I heard (true or not) that the woman who bought it, sent her chauffer to pick it up. I love the gallery, have donated money, and only wish I didn't live so far away, so I could go to the openings; also the neighborhood is a parking challenge. Best Wishes. ( I was also in a show about four,five years ago.) Margaret Newman PS: When you were on Ravenswood, a Tribune reporter took a photo of my painting "Girlfriends" and an interview , and the painting was in the art page. Your gallery has been good to me.

I am an artist and have showed my work many times at Woman Made Gallery. It is one of the few galleries that supports all level of work for women. They have juried shows which attract artists and the public alike. It is a beautiful gallery, that shows the art to advantage. The director cares for the artists with nurturing and advice. I have sold my work there, because the opening of new shows attracts a great many people. The best!

What energy! The moment you walk into the space you are transformed by the creative energy. I have been a member since, well, Praire Ave, & can't keep track of time. Walking into that extraordinary building was like comeing home. So welcoming. So encouraging, We in the Chicago-land area are blessed somehow to have this opportunity to share in our lives. The moves the gallery has made are bringing new enlightment to every community and engage those lucky enough to have stumbled into the doors,

I truly enjoy viewing the variety of artistic works displayed during the shows given by Woman's Made Gallery. Whether one enjoys scuptures, paintings or photography, the artists use unique materials to graphically display the emotions they are attempting to tell. I look forward to each show, and can not wait to see everything in 2012.

I have viewed several of the exhibits at Woman Made Gallery. It is difficult for me to pick which one I like the most. It is wonderful that there is a place and organization that gives the opportunity for individual artists to display their artwork. From needlework and painting to mixed media it is great to see the detail the artist produces. I think one of the best was a representation of something I also experienced, the decline of a loved ones health. The artwork, a series of pictures, tactfully and artfully expressed the feelings I felt. They do a great job, and with them being a not for profit organization, I personally help them by assisting in a monitary donation, to keep them open for us all.

Women Made Gallery has created a a unique space where the art lovers and artists can come together and exchange ideas. The shows are thought provoking and forward thinking while still maintaining aesthetic concerns. This is a special organization that has a local and national presence. I have had the honor of showing my work at the gallery and it was a wonderful experience!

The Woman Made Gallery (Chicago) continues to impress me with its dedication to women and the arts. WMG not only sustains and fosters this relationship, but endorses the distinct and creative contributions of women in the arts not only through exhibitions, both domestically and internationally based, but with programs that serve, educate and enrich our community as a whole. As a L.A. artist, WMG has been an amazing addition to my art and personal membership in the art world.

Woman Made Gallery makes it possible for artists from many different backgrounds eligible to submit their work to their gallery. The gallery goes out of their way to support women and themes presented for shows, celebrating diversity. The hands of the Woman Made gallery traveled even to MN where they made a special visit to the WARM, the Women's Art Registry of MN, where Beate Minkovski gave a talk and greeted reviewed work in our show. I will continue to visit the gallery despite no longer living in the Chicago area, I do travel to visit a few times a year to visit relatives. I have also heard many good things about their outreach program, being a teacher in the arts I know how important inspiring young children can change their perspective on life. I beleive the gallery will continue to grow and move forward.

I am not sure what changes I would make to the organization at this time, I know this organization is non-profit and requires funding for their outreach programs, perhaps more grants should be available for education through the arts.

The actual existence of Woman Made gallery has contributed to my sense of pride as an artist and more importantly, to my sense of belonging in the art world. My relationship with this gallery began 8 years ago with my participation in a group exhibition "Tradition: The Blessing and the Curse". I am preparing to take part in their upcoming "14th INTERNATIONAL Open" group exhibition. I am a Haitian born artist with a focus on women and Vodoo imageries. Because of my style, I don't fit neatly into the commercial mainstream gallery exhibitions. Nevertheless, over the past 40 years I have participated in many shows, both solo and with groups. Compared to many other galleries I've experienced, Woman Made's phylosophy and vision make it an excellent place for women artists like me. This gallery avoids the usual intimidation and snobery often encountered in the art world; it manages to maintain a high level of professionalism, while being accessible and supportive . Their welcoming attitude shows respect for the great diversity of women artists. As far as I know, many artists from the US and other countries dream of showing their work in large cities like New York and Chicago. Sadly these places are nearly impossible to access and they continue to cater primarily to a white male dominated demographics. Other sad fact is that non profit galleries can be quite incompetent which can make the artists feel devalued. Woman Made makes a much needed contribution to the female half of the art world and should be supported.

For me, being able to exhibit at Woman Made Gallery offers me more exposure in a big city. In addition, it allows me to exhibit with women from all over the world.

If I had my way, I would seek out large art grants so Woman Made Gallery could continue to offer many exhibitions and even fly in artists from the developing countries and obscure parts of the world whose works would surely enrich us, but to whom the doors of many art galleries are still closed.
