“As a longtime professional artist and arts journalist, I’ve had many experiences with galleries, and of those, Woman Made Gallery stands out as among the best…From my point of view as an artist, Woman Made sets itself apart as a top-notch professional gallery that’s also a haven for female artists (a group still mostly underrepresented in the arts world and larger culture). Visitors can count on the gallery to present shows featuring sensitive and smart installation to spotlight outstanding visual art in numerous media that addresses important, thought-provoking themes.”
