Woman Made Gallery

Woman Made Gallery is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. WMG’s mission is to  cultivate, promote and support the work of women and non-binary artists through  exhibitions, membership, and community dialogue programs. Woman Made Gallery  is a space for women and non-binary artists, including trans women and femme/ feminine-identifying genderqueer. We welcome artists from our local community,  regionally based, and around the world.  

Since WMG’s founding in 1992, WMG has shown the artistic work of over 9,000  women and non-binary artists in 445 exhibitions. Nine exhibitions (majority open  call, juried group exhibitions) are hosted annually at WMG in Chicago’s Pilsen  neighborhood. WMG boasts a membership base of over 300 artists annually. To date,  WMG has provided professional development workshops and connected members  to over 15,000 supporters via networking events and online promotion. WMG hosts  conversations on the issues that matter most to women and that makes sense of the  world through a feminist lens. Artist talks, panel discussions, poetry readings, among  other public programs inspire community dialogue. 

Opening receptions are hosted on the first Saturday of the exhibition, and a closing artists walkthrough is hosted on the closing day. Closed on major holidays and between exhibitions.
