The Latest at Woman Made Gallery

Three exhibitions opened last Friday at Woman Made Gallery beginning with The 15th International Open, which features artwork in a wide range of media, created by women from the international community. The juror for this exhibition was Linda Warren, the founder and director of Linda Warren Gallery in Chicago, IL.

A solo exhibition entitled, Patterns of Nature: The Spiral and Interconnectedness features the work of Claudia Kleefeld. Through this body of work, the artist incorporates the natural world into both her content and her formal investigations employing a wide range of aesthetic and conceptual strategies. With a range of artworks on display, Kleefeld attempts to incite a dialogue with her viewers on a universal, metaphorical level, as well as a deeply personal level. She says that through this exhibition, she “aims to reconnect others and myself to nature, causing a collective remembering of sacred and recurring forms.”

In The One Who Rises, artist Kaitlin Kostus presents a body of work that draws on Baltic Pagan mythology to explore her connections to Baltic cultures through her ethnic background (Lithuanian), and her culture gained through marriage (Latvian). Through her interpretations of symbols and stories from the Baltic heritage, she is able to express her contemporary, personal point of view of these mythologies.
