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.

This is an amazing organization that gives women a place to showcase their creative talents. Run by an incredibly gifted artist, Kim, she has brought her vision to life. I would encourage everyone to support this organization. This world needs more art, especially by women.

The painting comes to me as if in a dream. Quote from Van Gogh. I refer to myself as the Brooklyn grandma Moses. My husband always asks why after 60 plus years of painting these past years you have been highly recognized. The story of women artists. We are all femart.
Now our creativity can come first. Art is our soul and femart recognizes that and represents us well.

I started volunteering with FemArt almost a year ago, and as an artist that has shown my work with galleries across the country, I can say that this organization truly takes care of its artists. The director personally connects with each artist and works tirelessly to put on accessible and successful exhibitions that connect the arts community across Jacksonville and beyond. I love to see female artists have a place to show their work and create community together!

FemArt is a wonderful accepting organization for woman artists. Sometimes people think art is just paintings but FemArt recognizes so much more! I have seen metal sculptures, mixed mediums with fiber/paper, gourd art as well as oils, caulk, acrylics-just wonderfully expressive and creative work! Kim couldn’t be more accepting and encouraging either to any and all art forms.

This organization focuses on promoting female artists and their work. In addition FemArt also provides educational opportunities/lectures helping to educate the artists and the public. Early on FemArt realized that art would have to be promoted through virtual means and began a virtual gallery thinking outside of the box.

My wife participated in multiple art exhibitions with FemArt. This organization has been great in supporting local women artists from all backgrounds. We were fascinated to see the great women artists gathering in WAVE exhibition at Jacksonville International Airport, the biggest women artist gathering we ever seen. Different races and backgrounds. This organization is doing great work in bringing people together.

FemArt made me feel home here in Jacksonville, the welcoming environment, positive energy and seeing the space FemArt Gallery is providing for women who are achieving in art, filled my heart with joy. I was fascinated when I saw the big gathering of women artists in “ Women Who Face it” art exhibition, which was my first exhibition participation with FemArt Gallery, at that moment I knew this is the right place for me.

I have been involved with FemArt for about 4 years and found them to inspirational and amazing. I started as a member, then volunteered on the board until my mother's health issues made it so that I had to take a leave of absence.
However, I have faith in FemArt, it's mission and leadership.
Thank you, Katie Seay

"In Praise of FemArt Gallery, Inc." Making a significant impact on the "ART SCENE" in Jacksonville, FL, this organization's impact on artists is beyond significant. For me, as a new artist, I found mentors, opportunities to learn from other artists, exhibition and solo show platforms, educational seminars, visibility and the camaraderie of a very diverse group of women artists. Under the leadership of FemArt’s multi-talented Executive Director, Kim Miller, who somehow manages to find time for every single artist who needs her tutelage and guidance, she has opened the world of art far beyond my paint brush. Her passion for giving a "visual voice" to as many diverse artists as possible, to being a die-hard CHAMPION of social justice and demanding equality for the appreciation of Women Artists, continues to motivate and inspire me. Having gained a new respect for the immense time, patience and talent this craft demands, Kim's high standards have pushed me far beyond my own expectations. I can now, thanks to Kim Miller and FemArt, call myself a “member of the club!” I no longer whisper the word when someone asks what I do… I shout it out with passion and pride and I stand with my fellow artists in bowing to FemArt’s efforts to make a difference by bringing high visibility and credibility to women’s talent and artwork. Thank you for all you do FemArt Gallery, Inc! You are a rising star!
Mahalo!

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.
