What's New at Woman Made Gallery
On this page we include news about exhibitions: who got into a show, what does the juror have to say, etc. We try to update the information as soon as we receive it and it's good to check here frequently to see if your work has been included into an exhibition.
While membership is not required for submitting work for shows and to exhibit art at Woman Made Gallery, membership is encouraged for those women artists who wish to benefit from our extensive services.

Have Your Own Affordable Website
Be part of our on-line registry even if you have a website already. Why? Because we have the name and we get the traffic. The price is $250 (which includes $100 hosting fee). For more information please visit
www.womanmade.net and view the websites by artists who are already part of this service. Many of the artists whose work is in the on-line registry and whose images appear on this website, have been 'discovered' by commercial galleries, curators and private collectors. Here is a letter by artist, Kathleen Waterloo's which we published in our Fall 2001 Newsletter that relates her experiences since she joined the On-line Registry:
I would like to encourage fellow members to join your online artist registry. Upon doing so a year ago, I have received many 'hits' on my link.
Several sources have requested slide packets/resumes for inclusion of my original artwork in the print market. A Washington, D.C. art consultant/gallery working with commercial interior designers, architects, and corporate clients also requested a complete slide packet with the potential for commission work. An author in the Atlanta area would like to include me in a book she is writing on creativity amongst artists that she terms 'late bloomers'. Most recently I have been included in an international exhibition of women artists that will take place in Italy this September.
Woman Made has established itself on the national and international level as a resource for artists, advocates, and aficionados. None of the above would have occurred without my exposure on the WMG online artist registry. Whereas artists may have their own website (I do) and feel no need for this service, people unfamiliar with their work will never opt to look at that site as they do not know a name to begin with. Being viewed on the Woman Made registry vs. one's own website holds much greater odds.
Kudos to WMG for being a frontrunner in this area with a most enjoyable, resourceful, professional, and user friendly website. Their 21st century vision has put Woman Made Gallery ahead of the pack. Similar galleries sprouting in other major cities have recently been sending me membership information!
Debates still persist about the legitimacy of showing one's work on the Internet. While the many debates continue, those using it are professional enough to know that they are viewing an image that undoubtedly is better seen in person. And in using it, they are able to conduct their art business and affairs in a more economic and efficient manner. The computer is the visual tool of the art community today. It is not going away. Use it and be seen! - - Kathleen Waterloo - 8-22-01
