Process and Material: April 17 - May 9, 2020

Exhibition Description: Oftentimes, artists pursue their unparalleled originality and one of a kind making process through their own inventive and unique adaptations of traditional techniques. The processes reflect the artists’ insights and experiences in creation, and it becomes a work of art itself. Other times, everyday objects and raw elements can challenge many makers to push the boundaries of the common perception and expectation of the material. It is also through the artists’ eyes that we see the hidden potential of the material.

Open to all artists, Woman Made Gallery is inviting artwork that is either made with unique materials, and/or unconventional methods of application. This exhibition will highlight both the artists’ innovative applications in fabrication, and pioneering approaches to the materials to cultivate the communication between each artist’s creative practice and their experimentation with the materials’ limit.

Suffra-Jetting: March 13 - April 4, 2020

It’s been 100 years since women were given the right to vote in the United States. In this exhibition, WMG is soliciting work by female identified artists that represent the experience of being a woman and the nuanced (and overt) ways that being female supports or subverts your daily life.  Artwork should reflect your narrative experience – your story of being female.  We’re searching for a variety of voices to share triumphs and setbacks that highlight gains made or what is missing in our society in terms of equality between the sexes. What is your story and how is it woven into a struggle for equality over 100 years old that has only definitively delivered the right to vote? 

Juror: Candace Hunter is a  Visual Artist, Culture Writer, Curator, and Water Rights Activist. Visit  https://chleeart.com/  for more information.

Eligibility:

In addition to other subjects of interest to women,  artists are encouraged to create and submit art that tells a story about violence against women & girls -whether in the past or current. We gather art for display that shows how violence against women & girls is happening now, and how it's use in the past shows how women have been controlled through fear.

Rape keeps women from going outside and having a full life. Domestic violence keeps women in abusive relationships and away from their own personal power. Honor killings keep women from leading full lives & having options. These are just a few ways that women are controlled by violence.

Women need to continue to speak up and let their voices be heard. Men who support women need to get on board. Women need platforms for their opinions and their voices to be heard. This art show will allow viewers to discuss what they see, and what the status of women's & girls lives are like.

During the art show, we will offer art workshops to make art about issues women are particularly concerned about. To find out about discussions, hours, and opportunities to make art during the show

Actual art must be received at gallery by January 26, 2020
