Detroit has a multitude of talented female artists that need a platform and the opportunities to share their talents and cultivate their careers as visual artists. DMJStudio has taken on this challenge and created WW Art Gallery (Women’s Work Art Gallery) a project and gallery for women, run by women, exhibiting the works of women in Detroit, and beyond. While our focus is women artists in Detroit/Michigan, we are here to represent women artists of the world.


[WW] Art Gallery will have monthly exhibitions featuring female artists, provide classes in business strategy, marketing and branding as well as classes for young girls and young female artists to help them find joy in the creative process. This location will become a place to cultivate female artists talent and a museum holding the history and works of female artists.

LET’S SLOW DOWN, EAT, DRINK AND MAKE ART WITH OUR SISTERS ACROSS THE RIVER

Detroit/Toronto Dress Project
DATE: Wednesday, July 25, 2018 | 6 – 9
LOCATION: The Baltimore Gallery Detroit | 314 E. Baltimore, Detroit, MI 48202

Organized by Donna Jackson of Detroit’s DMJStudio’s Women’s Work Gallery and OCAD U Sculpture student Eija Loponen-Stephenson, the Dress Project is a cross-border collaborative effort to unite women from Toronto, Ontario and Detroit, Michigan in creating an installation focused on domestic actions such as mending, ironing, and stain removal and their connection with womanhood, femininity and the defining roles of women in the past and present.

Participants will bring garments that are stained, ripped, or wrinkled and will be taught techniques on how to clean, repair, or iron them. Participants will then be asked to apply these skills to a sample fabric that will be used to build the dresses that will be part of an exhibition happening simultaneously Toronto and Detroit this fall.

Free Event! Food, wine, and music will be available. Participants, please bring a garment that you need ironing, mended or need stains removed to participate AND be ready to be creative.

EVENTBRITE: Feel free to invite other women to relax and create with us.
