Per their web site â€œWoman Made Gallery is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization. Its vision is to ensure the equal placement of womenâ€™s art in the world. More than 6500 women have exhibited their art at WMG since 1992.â€ It offers Calls for Art which I will investigate further for myself.
The space was filled with modern artworks by women, along with a solo section by Ulli Rooney. Here is a peek at what 21st Century Minimalism looks like:

I didnâ€™t know one could crochet fiberglass:
Blue poles â€¦ 2133475 from pi by Yvette Kaiser Smith, crocheted fiberglass, polyester resin
Repetition has a soothing effect.
Terraneous by Phuong Pham mulberry paper, soy wax, perforation
The acrylic textures of Jan Blytheâ€™s Whites Group were also very cool.
Of course I was mostly drawn to the encaustic techniques. Kathleen Waterloo had a solo exhibit in an area downstairs.

Neon lights on encaustic:

I flunked my intent to network at the reception (more on that some other time), but absorbing the art was a good experience.
I wish you an inspirational weekend.
*PS: it seems to take me a week to post my Friday jaunts, doesn’t it? Better late than never I suppose… 🙂
