Geraldine McCullough died on December 15, 2008 after a long and productive life creating her beautiful artwork.. Born on December 1, 1922 (or 1917) in Mason County, Arkansas, McCullough spent her formative years in Chicago, graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with both Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees in painting and art education, and taught in the Chicago public school system.. After serving as the Chairperson of the Art Department for twelve years, Rosary College, (later Dominican University) in River Forest, IL bestowed upon her an Honorary Doctorate at her retirement.. Her work is exhibited in many notable collections throughout the U.. S.. , including 'Three Generations of African American Women Sculptors' at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington and the National Women's Museum in Washington, DC.. While initially a painter, McCullough adopted welded sculpture as her preferred medium after her husband, Lester McCullough introduced her to the technique.. McCullough first achieved recognition in the art community with her steel and copper sculpture.. Phoenix.. , which received the George D.. Widener Gold Medal for Sculpture in 1965.. , as the title suggests, expresses an organic form, perhaps a leaf, wing, or claw, which rises and unfolds in an elegant twisting movement, almost contrapposto.. Like many of her other works,.. blends both figuration and abstraction, suggesting a figure with one arm outstretched and the other bent back over neck and head in pain or joy.. In 2000, artist Geraldine McCullough was presented the Oak Park (IL) Area Arts Council's Joseph Randall Shapiro Award, given annually, in recognition of "exceptional contributions to the arts.. " Inside her huge Oak Park studio Geraldine McCullough continued through the end of her life to work with welded, fabricated, brazed sheet copper and brass, and mute forms of cast bronze in order to discover an eloquent visual language of shape,  ...   to walk past someone's 'bed' on a bitterly cold day in the capital city of our rich nation, I was moved to take a photograph.. My own family lived modestly, but we always had a warm and comfortable place to lay our heads at night - a cozy spot made even more so by the beautiful needlework of our foremothers.. I used one of these pillowcases as a backdrop (like a photo album page) for the sad streetscape picture, and included (for added irony) the words that countless mothers have whispered as their children drifted off to sleep: Sweet Dreams.. And, to further point out the rift between the Haves and the Have-Nots, guidelines for the use of 'at-home' cards are included, as well as (in the form of litter on the fence) an at-home card for the biggest Have that we have in the USA (and whose image is subtly superimposed three times on the vertical right-most column where he can look down on the results of his compassionate conservatism.. It is of immense interest to me that the rich and the poor live side-by-side in this country and yet they inhabit completely different worlds.. How can there ever be empathy? And without empathy, how can there be change?".. Erin Joslin.. ERIN JOSLIN.. Artist Erin Joslin died on Monday, August 23, 2004.. Our most sincere condolences and empathy to Erin's entire family and all who knew and loved her.. Erin Joslin graduated from the School of the Art Institute in Chicago in 1998 with a BFA.. Her previous trip to Ireland inspired her to work with raw sheep's fleece.. Erin exhibited two of her carefully crafted and very beautiful three-dimensional artworks in the 'Animal Stories' exhibition which was on display from September 11 to October 9, 1998 at Woman Made Gallery.. We have included one of those works here.. "Erin was an artist all of her life.. She began drawing and painting before she could write.. Often her schoolwork included sketches in the margins.. An artist from SAIC came to her high school in Wichita and she was determined to attend that college.. She did attend the early college program in Chicago between her junior and senior years in high school, and applied only to SAIC.. She was accepted.. Between her junior and senior years in college, she went to Allihies, in the Beara Peninsula of County Cork, Ireland, to study art.. Her last college course was taken there as well, and when SAIC awarded her a fellowship to travel, she used it to stay in Ireland.. It was in Ireland that she was inspired to create her "beasts" and that was the focus of her work during her last year in college and upon her return to Ireland.. The 2001 hoof and mouth disease outbreak in Ireland inspired an installation that was displayed at the opening of a new hotel in Galway.. Erin was working on another project that she was planning with another artist the year before she became so ill.. It involved a park in Galway, children and recyclables.. At her funeral service a large unfinished piece was displayed.. She died too soon.. " -Carolyn Anderson.. Woman Made Gallery thanks all individuals who have made donations to the organization in memory of Erin Joslin: Carolyn Anderson, Laura Black, Margot Breckbill, Juli Burke, Donna Daly, Mary Ann Ernzen, Sue Guenthner, Vicky Howard, Mary Koehn, Jeri Melin, Marleen Patty, Karen Wohlwend..

Nancy's photography was accepted into the 'Honoring the Crone' exhibition in Fall 2001 at WMG and she offered her photographic services to members of WMG.. We will all miss her dearly.. Nancy was laid to rest at Calvary Cemetery on Tuesday, May 28, 2002.. Memorials may be made to your favorite charity.. Annalee Hultgren.. ANNALEE HULTGREN..

Hollis Sigler, a prominent Chicago-area artist lost her courageous battle with breast cancer on Thursday, March 29, 2001.. Our connection with Hollis goes back to 1994 when she shared her thoughts about her art and her struggles with her illness at a memorable lecture at Woman Made Gallery.. Already admired for her naive autobiographical paintings, she became best known for her series in "Breast Cancer Journal: Walking with the Ghosts of My Grandmothers," which she exhibited in 1993 at the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington and at Rockford College and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.. Hollis Sigler received a lifetime achievement award from the College Art Association.. It joined a similar honor by the Illinois Arts Alliance and an honorary doctorate from Moore College.. She also received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Illinois Arts Council and was one of the honorees at the Women's Caucus of Art in March, 2001.. A memorial service took place on April 21, 2001 at 2 pm at the Dance Center at Columbia College, 1306 South Michigan in Chicago.. Breast Cancer Journal.. Here is a review of "The Breast Cancer Journal" by Lynn Kable, Founding Board Member and Former President, Society for the Arts in Healthcare from New York City:.. Hollis Sigler has created a visual language, easily learned and powerfully understood, using images of a woman's everyday life to portray wildly varying emotions of a woman diagnosed with re-occurring cancer.. "Hollis Sigler's Breast Cancer Journal" show's Hollis' own incredible strength in living and painting life to the fullest while concurrently fighting serious illness.. Her drawings and paintings reflect the experiences of women living with breast cancer and those who care for them, while providing a means of immediate, almost organic emotional understanding to their families, neighbors, and friends.. Hollis is brave, powerful, and very much attached to life.. Her struggles are all of ours: through her art we learn to better understand ourselves.. From 1994-1997 The Society for the Arts in Healthcare (SAH) sponsored with the National Museum of Women in the Arts a national tour to 24 hospitals of replicas, donated by Polaroid Corporation, of 14 Hollis Sigler drawings and painting about living with breast cancer, all of which now appear in "Hollis Sigler's Breast Cancer Journal.. " Hollis' powerful images provided a vehicle for patients and families, doctors and nurses, visitors, medical students and non-professional staff to consider breast cancer from a visually articulate patient's point of view.. Kathy Miller of the Cancer Wellness Center in Northbrook, IL wrote at the time about the art and Hollis Sigler: "The art is thought-provoking for people of all ages and in all stages of health.. Women have a lot in common -- her work says it all.. " Hollis Sigler's work is important, a series of visual statements with the same emotional validity as the writings of Elisabeth Kubler-Ross or the choreography of Bill T.. Jones.. I have shown some of Hollis' images which appear in this book during arts-in-healthcare talks to medical students in Ohio, patients in New York, and healthcare professionals in Japan.. The images have always met with visual and emotional appreciation and immediate understanding from the audience.. From the standpoint of this particular reader and member of the Arts in Healthcare movement,.. Hollis Sigler's Breast Cancer Journal.. is a Must Read! -.. Sara Marie Risk.. SARA MARIE RISK.. Sara Marie Risk died November 6th, 1998.. She moved from Chicago to New Britain, Connecticut with her husband Sean Gallagher, where she taught and created her moving portraits inspired by Italian Renaissance art.. Both she and Sean were members of Woman Made Gallery from the early beginnings and both have exhibited together in WMG's annual Member's Show.. Rene A.. Townsend.. RENE A.. TOWNSEND..

  • Title: Woman Made Gallery: History
    Descriptive info: HISTORY.. BOARD.. PERSONNEL.. ADVISORS.. ANNUAL REPORTS.. Judy.. Cooperman.. H I S T O R Y.. 1992 - Present.. Woman Made Gallery (WMG) was founded in 1992 to provide women artists with the opportunity to exhibit, perform, publish and sell their work and to offer a place for support and community.. According to an NEA 1992 statistic, only 17% of works in U.. galleries are by women, although 48% of the artists in the U.. S are women (Bureau of Labor, 1993).. The prevalence of discrimination is not so amazing when we consider that just 40 years ago there was virtually no mention of women artists in university art history courses or in texts on art.. Because discrimination does exist, WMG is here to provide women with opportunities to exhibit, curate, perform, read, teach and develop leadership.. WMG is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that was established to work for the equal placement of women's art in the world.. To effectively achieve this goal, art produced by women would be exhibited, collected and written about as abundantly as art produced by men.. WMG focuses energy in these three areas by exhibiting art made by and about women, educating the public about women's art, and advocating for the equal treatment of women's accomplishments.. WMG was located on Chicago's northside in Ravenswood Manor until August 1997.. In its first five years, WMG held ten juried group exhibits annually after which we reduced the exhibitions to eight per year, to allow for additional viewing time for each exhibition.. We have exhibited the art of over 6500 women artists from every area of the United States, as well as from Canada, Central America, and overseas.. Exhibits have ranged in theme from topics such as domestic violence and prejudice issues to stylistic themes such as the still life and surrealism.. Some shows have been exclusive to artists who are lesbians, women over 50, women under 30, and women of color.. Representatives of the groups juried these exhibits.. At Woman Made Gallery, women themselves decide what art is culturally significant.. Varied perspectives are featured because we select women from different cultural and professional backgrounds to act in leadership roles such as jurors and curators.. In September 1997, WMG moved its facilities from the storefront in the Ravenswood community to Prairie Avenue, south of downtown Chicago.. The move was motivated by a desire to be more centrally located to downtown and closer to the more diverse populations that reside in Chicago's Southside and Pilsen neighborhoods.. This location also accommodated more exhibition space and allowed us to exhibit various works from our Permanent Collection.. Woman Made Gallery left the Prairie Avenue District early in 2003 to continue its programs in a new neighborhood in Humboldt Park, bordering Wicker Park.. There the Gallery was housed until November 2005 in a 2,300-square foot space in the Acme Artist Community Building at 2418 W.. Bloomingdale, among artists' studios and other not-for-profit organizations.. Since November 15, 2005, Woman Made Gallery has been located at 685 N.. Milwaukee Avenue, just two blocks southeast of Intuit and close to ARC Gallery.. In a 3000-square foot space distributed on two levels, WMG is hosting six exhibition cycles per year with at least eight group and eight solo exhibitions, plus four thematic group shows in its Artisan Gallery, per year.. The gallery has increasingly attracted journalists and critics, resulting in complimentary articles and reviews.. Persistence, professionalism, and confidence in our mission have led to a heightened public interest in gallery events that continues to grow.. We have also been successful in getting many women artists reviewed and featured on television and radio shows.. In addition our website, online registry, and efforts through public media provide valuable exposure for an ever-growing number of women artists and their work.. Woman Made Gallery Timeline..

  • Title: Woman Made Gallery: Directors
    Descriptive info: Mary.. Phelan.. P E R S O N N E L.. History.. Woman Made Gallery was co-founded in 1992 by Beate C.. Minkovski and Kelly Hensen, two returning art students at Northeastern Illinois University.. Renting a storefront on Chicago's north side, Kelly and Beate exhibited their Senior Show, "Man-Made Women.. " Kelly is responsible for giving the Gallery its great name and for the original WMG logo taken from her woodcut, depicting two hands forming a triangle.. What started as a personal studio space for these two friends evolved into a not-for-profit gallery serving women artists since 1992.. Minkovski has continued to guide WMG as its Executive Director since 1993.. Active with neighboring arts organizations Intuit and ARC, she served on the Community Arts Assistance Program (CAAP) Panel for the Chicago Cultural Center from 2005 to 2008, and in 2012.. Minkovski was part of the Special Service Area (SSA) #29 Commission jury panel for public art in Chicago's Westtown, and has curated exhibitions for various arts organizations, including the CWCA, The Women's Art Registry of Minnesota, Women's Work in Woodstock, and The Art Center in Highland Park, Illinois.. She is the 2006 CWCA award recipient for achievements in the arts.. Many devoted and able women have helped to shape and develop WMG into a strong organization.. One of the gallery's major contributors is.. Janet Bloch.. , who, after refining the WMG logo, dedicated her services as Gallery Director from 1993 to January 2000..

Typically, an intern works at least one day a week for a 10- to 15-week period.. Interns assist staff members with publicity, installation of art, artist relations, editing of the website, grant research, and many other activities.. They help keep the gallery organized and help with a variety of tasks that increase the daily productivity of Woman Made.. Interns come from a variety of universities and organizations, including the School of the Art Institute, Loyola University, DePaul University, Northwestern University, Columbia College, and organizations like the Urban Life Center, located in Chicago's Hyde Park neighborhood.. Interns' areas of interests are diverse and have included studies in visual art, painting, art history, sociology, and gender studies..

There are many, many other great volunteers who have contributed their time and energy throughout the years.. Sometimes their contributions were a one-time commitment and other times they got "stuck" and more intensely involved.. Laura Stempel faithfully coordinated the Women's Group each 4th Sunday of the month.. These "Her Group" sessions are now guided by Deb Flagel and LuEllen Joy Giera.. Artist and writer Andrea Harris and Ellen Wade Beals volunteered their skills to write periodic articles for past WMG newsletters.. There are over 100 volunteers who have helped at WMG over the past few years, and we are very grateful and truly fortunate to know all of them.. At WMG many cooks don't spoil the food, but make the organization stronger, more diverse, and more exciting.. Through volunteering, local artists accomplish two things: they give to a good cause, and learn professionalism when dealing with galleries in general..

  • Title: Woman Made Gallery: Artists' Registry
    Descriptive info: Fillhardt.. ARTISTS' REGISTRY.. Are You Ready to Be a Web Woman?.. In our ongoing efforts to serve women artists and to educate the public about their artistic contribution, WMG started an.. Online Artists' Registry.. in July 2000.. It is the best and most efficient self-promotional tool, besides having professional images, an updated resume and bio, being a member of a respected arts organization and participating in their online registry.. If you already have your own independent web page, we suggest that you have another one with Woman Made Gallery.. WHY? Because we get the traffic which benefits you too.. And there is a lot that you can do with your web site: How can anything be easier and faster than sending 15 images at a click of a button to anyone else in the world who has internet access?.. View the artists'.. web pages.. ! Click on the art images to see more of their art or click on the names to find out who these artists are.. As you will discover, the web page is simple, easy to navigate and beautiful on top of it.. We are extremely proud of the design, done by Galganov & Associates, our web designers, and very happy to be able to offer it to you for the most reasonable price!.. Requirements.. If you have 15 good digital images of a body of work (basic web page), you are ready to have your own WMG web page.. Your "Internet Gallery" can help you connect with potential collectors, gallery owners and curators from around the world.. All requirements and instructions are in the.. FOR ARTISTS.. section, but if you need guidance, contact us by.. email.. or call the Gallery at 312-738-0400.. The total cost for the basic website for the first year is $250, which includes the annual hosting fee ($150), setting up your site, scanning and color correcting 15 slide images plus one main-page image, and typesetting your personal information (resume, artist's statement, selected exhibitions, etc.. ) The advanced version of the website allows you to have up to 30 images on your site.. The cost is $10 per slide or $5 per jpg image above the initial $250 price.. If, in the future, you wish to exchange older images with new work or add more images it will cost you $10 per slide or $5 per jpg image.. Editing text is $10 per  ...   that international checks may take two weeks or more to clear.. Posted with permission from the Maryland State Arts Council Visual Artists' Registry.. Testimonials.. Dear WMG,.. I would like to encourage fellow members to join your online artist registry.. Since doing so a year ago, I have received many "hits" on my link.. Several sources have requested slide packets/resumes for inclusion of my original artwork in the print market.. A Washington, D.. art consultant/gallery working with commercial interior designers, architects, and corporate clients also requested a complete slide packet with the potential for commission work.. An author in the Atlanta area would like to include me in a book she is writing on creativity amongst artists that she terms "late bloomers.. " Most recently I have been included in an international exhibition of women artists that will take place in Italy this September.. Woman Made has established itself on the national and international level as a resource for artists, advocates, and aficionados.. None of the above would have occurred without my exposure on the WMG online artist registry.. Whereas artists may have their own web page(I do) and feel no need for this service, people unfamiliar with their work will never opt to look at that site as they do not know a name to begin with.. Being viewed on the Woman Made registry vs.. one's own web page holds much greater odds.. Kudos to WMG for being a frontrunner in this area with a most enjoyable, resourceful, professional, and user friendly website.. Their 21st century vision has put Woman Made Gallery ahead of the pack.. Similar galleries sprouting in other major cities have recently been sending me membership information!.. Debates still persist about the legitimacy of showing one's work on the Internet.. While the many debates continue, those using it are professional enough to know that they are viewing an image that undoubtedly is better seen in person.. And in using it, they are able to conduct their art business and affairs in a more economic and efficient manner.. The computer is the visual tool of the art community today.. It is not going away.. Use it and be seen!.. -- Kathleen Waterloo - 8-22-01.. (top right).. Quantum Leap.. , acrylic on canvas by Ulrike Ostermann.. (left)..
