FemArtGallery links women artists together toward a common goal. That goal is to support women artists through community outreach, art exhibits, education, workshops and critiques. I have found this organization to be profoundly helpful to me personally while I continue to persue my artistic endeavors and meet women artists who are also passionate about their art and the importance of giving women artists a voice heard far and wide. It is my sincere hope that more women artists will join us and spread their talents beyond our wildest dreams. In closing, I would like to thank Kim Miller, Executive Director, for her vision, persistance and friendship.

A great organization focused on supporting and promoting women artists. The art shows held by FemArt are always amazing to see. Very professionally run and highlights some of our best artists in the Northeast Florida area. I feel honored to have been one of the artists in the first show FemArt held and look forward to more in the future.

I joined FemArt earlier this year because I liked the idea of a group that was dedicated to promoting women artists and giving us more opportunities to show and sell our work. In addition to holding art exhibits they are involved in community outreach. We are currently developing a coloring book from womens paintings for preschoolers and will be giving presentations to them. In the few short months I have belonged to the group I have benefited in several ways and have met more local artists and found another gallery to display my work. I hope to help FemArt grow to include even more artists with even more opportunities for us to show our work.

For such a young non-profit group, FemArt has great goals! I couldn't be happier to join such a forward moving group that is focused on balancing the art community by promoting women artists! For women, by women. The statistics on how much gallery space females get globally is just unacceptable. I look forward to helping make FemArt grow and change lives! Inspiring women to create and share their art proudly!~Love from a local female artist!

FemArt Gallery is an exceptional group of women artists. This organization was founded for the purpose of supporting and promoting women artists, and I know that they do an excellent job of this from my own experience. FemArt is encouraging, supportive and they are the only venue here that exhibits women's art on a consistent basis. They are inclusive, discerning and are involved with the community as well. They are also involved in community education and offer many programs and opportunities for women artists beyond exhibitions. This organization is the best!!

Very lovely and friendly organization of female artists. I am so proud to be in association and a part of this organization. They have helped out so many women artists in getting exposure and recognition for their work through their website and the art exhibitions that they hold in sponsored galleries. I highly recommend for others to join, be a part of an art community, and to help out with the community.
