CHICAGO — Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is pleased to host the reception for “Water Becomes Blood,” a group exhibition juried by Aliya Parashar and Zakkiyyah Najeebah Dumas O'Neal. This exhibition features the work of 9 LGBTQ+ artists exploring the importance of non-familial relationships that foster a sense of nurturing, community, and acceptance. The exhibition is on view at the gallery.
About the Exhibition
When safety is not always promised in blood relations, chosen families can create a space that centers around the security of their individuals. These families host love, joy, and acceptance at their core via unquestioned support. This allows members to explore and self-actualize in the form of true liberation. They also provide room for members to question themselves and the greater community during the process of their journey.

No extensive experience required, but each member must be able to show their connection to these skills in some way.
Board Members must have passion and interest in learning about the visual or literary arts.
