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 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. Myett Risker, a local artist and curator, is partnering with Donna Jackson, owner of DMJStudio, and the DMJStudio team to bring this vision into reality. The gallery will be located at 10325 Linwood St., an old fire station located near historic Boston-Edison Neighborhood. The door will open in 2018.
[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.
