Woman Made Gallery is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization founded in 1992. Its goal is to cultivate, promote and support the work of female-identified artists by providing exhibition opportunities, professional development, and public programs that invite discussion about what feminism means today. More than 8,250 women artists have exhibited their work since WMG was established. WMG welcomes the participation of people of all gender expressions and orientations as artists and program participants, members and supporters.
Woman Made Gallery’s vision is to ensure the equal placement of women’s art in the world.
Woman Made Gallery (WMG) supports, cultivates and promotes the diverse contributions of women in the arts through exhibitions and other programs that serve, educate and enrich the community.
Woman Made Gallery (WMG) was established by founding directors Kelly Hensen and Beate Minkovski who presented their inaugural exhibition, Man Made Women in May 1992 in a rented storefront in Chicago’s Ravenswood neighborhood. Read about the beginning here.
