JUST ANNOUNCED

First Deadline ($30): Sunday, January 30, 2022 @ 11:59 PM CST

Extended Deadline ($35): Sunday, February 6, 2022 @ 11:59 PM CST

Woman Made Gallery is seeking submissions for our April – May 2022 group exhibition The Deeply Rooted juried by Sundus Abdul Hadi.

This curatorial concept is taken from Sundus Abdul Hadi’s book “Take Care of Your Self: The Art and Cultures of Care and Liberation” and seeks artwork in any medium that align with Abdul Hadi's definition of Deeply Rooted: 

"Deeply-rooted is an empowered word to describe any person or community rooted in an ancient culture steeped in traditional and Indigenous knowledge that colonization attempted to erase. It is a word that attempts to describe the multiplicity of ethnicities and experiences related to the international Indigenous, Black, Pan-African, Afro-descendent, Arab, Brown, Latinx, South American, and Asian communities." - Sundus Abdul Hadi

Dawn Liddicoatt is a Chicago-based visual artist. She creates mostly figurative sculpture and rough-hewn, hand built ceramic work.

ARTIST STATEMENT: "I love sculpting the female form, so went back to the beginning and began recreating some of the Upper Paleolithic Venus figurines. I continue to create various Goddess forms, some reminiscent of the Paleolithic venuses - with no arms or feet, some with more agency who stand of their own accord or ride horses, some who adorn walls; imbuing all with specific energy and powers as I create them. All celebrate the divine feminine and empowerment; most embody wisdom and protection." - Dawn Liddicoatt

YEAR END GIVING

SUSTAIN OUR FEMINIST FUTURE

As 2021 comes to a close, consider supporting Woman Made Gallery. A monthly recurring donation of any size will sustain us to continue to make space for women and non-binary artists, like Veronica Billedo
Veronica is a multi-disciplinary artist in Chicago and is currently on view in our Small Works Members Exhibition. Born as the first generation in this country, she obtained her Bachelor of Arts at Columbia College Chicago in Film and Photography and went on to explore painting and drawing. In 2020, she completed a trauma-informed yoga teacher training at Room to Breathe Chicago, which led her to connect even more deeply with the perspective of mental and physical self care as art.

Every little bit goes a long way and brings opportunities to artists like Veronica.
