About Juried Exhibitions
Woman Made Gallery (WMG) hosts 7 exhibitions annually, 5 of which are juried exhibitions and open to submissions from women and non-binary artists. These juried exhibitions explore a wide variety of themes that connect women and non-binary artists with high profile art industry professionals and foster dialogue within contemporary feminism and social justice.
The WMG programming committee (composed of WMG staff, board, and volunteers) identifies initial themes and potential jurors, and collaborates with each juror to develop the exhibition themes.
Recent jurors have included:
Alison Wong (Director and Curator at Wasserman Projects, Detroit); Dolores Mercado (Associate Curator at National Museum of Mexican Art), Jessica Bingham (artist, mother, and recent Curator at University Galleries of Illinois State University, Normal, IL), Juana Williams (Independent Curator, Detroit), Mia Lopez (Assistant Curator at the DePaul Art Museum in Chicago), Kathryn Markel (Director of Markel Fine Arts, New York City), Whitney LaMora (Curator at The Martin and LOCUS, Chicago), Amy Galpin (Chief Curator at Frost Art Museum of Florida International University), Sam Kirk (Multidisciplinary Artist, Chicago), Barbara Ciurej and Lindsay Lochman (collaborative photographers, Milwaukee, WI), Dorit Jordan Dotan (multi-media artist, Chicago), Indira Freitas Johnson (artist and educator, Chicago), among others.
Woman Made Gallery is a space for Women and non-binary artists from our local community, regionally based, and around the world. We welcome art from all women, including trans women and femme/feminine-identifying genderqueer and non-binary artists.
No work may exceed 6’ horizontally or be over 75 pounds in weight unless delivered and picked up by the artist. WMG will refuse receipt of art that is heavier than 75 pounds. Artworks must be delivered to the gallery “ready to exhibit.” Technology and/or works requiring special instructions will be organized upon acceptance.
WMG offers fee waivers to those that request the need and upon approved application. WMG offers 30 fee waivers in total. To acknowledge the historic inequities of wealth distribution, 15 of the 30 are exclusively reserved for ALAANA/BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+. Factors that result in an approved application include financial instability or low-income status, student or recent graduate status, identification as ALAANA/BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA+, or a demonstrated need otherwise. WMG accepts Fee Waiver Request forms on a rolling basis until all fee waivers have been distributed. A note declaring all fee waivers have been distributed will be added to the Submission form at that time. (That is, if you are reading this, the form is active, and there are still fee waivers available!) The team at WMG will approve and send a Submittal fee waived link within four days of application receipt.
