Woman Made Gallery annual programs currently includes around eight juried exhibitions which explore a wide variety of themes: spirituality, environmental concerns, race and gender issues, historical observations, political investigations, etc. with an emphasis on celebrating human diversity. The majority of exhibitions are open to artists worldwide and of all genders working across all disciplines. Exceptions are the annual International Open which invites female identified artists to submit their work.
Group exhibitions are curated and juried by different professional women, artists and non-artists. Artists are challenged to translate chosen topics into visual presentations and a short general artist statement is required of the artist and exhibited together with the work. This gives additional information to the viewer who in return is often challenged to investigate and question his or her own belief system based on traditional values.
All exhibitions are viewable online: https://womanmade.org/exhibitions/
