CHICAGO –– Woman Made Gallery (WMG) is pleased to present “Process and Material,” an exhibition that highlights both the artists’ unparalleled applications in fabrication and pioneering approaches to the materials to cultivate the communication between each artist’s creative practice and their experimentation with the materials’ limits.

The curator, Yoonshin Park, approached the jury process with several goals in mind: providing a fresh and stimulating perspective to our viewers, offering a notable platform to new and emerging artists, and allowing established artists to continue to communicate through their newer work. From a large pool of 600+ works, Yoonshin Park selected both two- and three-dimensional works by 35 artists for this exhibition.

Amelia Key from Jackson, Mississippi, who created her work “Improvisation 2” with dyed bread tabs and wire, writes about her process: “I approach each piece intuitively, allowing it to ‘grow’ organically. My motivation to continue creating stems from an insatiable curiosity about the world around me and a fascination with the objects we habitually use and discard. I work with found objects chosen for their bright colors, plasticity, shape, and texture, which I then alter and repurpose to create new forms. Ultimately, my goal is to manipulate my materials until they are no longer regarded as their original form but instead transcend their purpose. Through my artwork, I strive to reveal the inherent beauty of everyday life.

Exhibiting Artists: Danielle Andress, Heather Baker, Cathie Bleck, Collette Broeders, Barb Cone, Melissa Jay Craig, Sherri Denault, Emily Elhoffer, Raquel Esquives, Carlynn Forst, Tanya Gill, Karen Gubitz, Yvette Kaiser Smith, Millicent Kennedy, Amelia Key, Lialia Kuchma, Jill Lanza, Camila Linaweaver, Tai Lipan, Jennifer Mannebach, Iz Mozer, Jodi Patterson, Cory Peeke, Kelly Pelka, CV Peterson, Gina Lee Robbins, Janice Roberts, Heather Schulte, Pamela Shipley, Corrin Smithson McWhirter, Harin Song, Kristen Tordella-Williams, Julie Weber, Holly Wong, Donna Zarbin-Byrne.

Curator: Yoonshin Park works with sculptural papers, artist books, and installation. Her main media concentration is pulp, paper, and artist books. Her interest in the comprehensive processes of paper-making and book-binding enables her work to encompass various elements woven into complete objects. She received her M.A. and M.F.A. in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts from Columbia College Chicago. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. She was born in Seoul, South Korea, and currently resides in Chicago, IL. For more information, visit https://www.yoonshinpark.com/.
