Their art is for women's sake

by Glenda Sampson: This article from Chicago Today discusses women's art collectives with special attention paid to the Chicago Women's Graphics Collective.

WOMEN'S ART collectives are blooming everywhere now. A group called Artists in Residence has just opened the first feminist art gallery ever in Manhattan, Penelope and Sisters share space and materials in a shop on Fourth Street in Philadelphia, and Womanspace in Los Angeles rents an exhibition hall to provide special low rates for shows by: women painters, photographers, and filmmakers.

Interview with Mary Ellen Croteau

In 2006, The Herstory Project exhibited a number of Chicago Women's Graphics Collective posters in the UIC Student Union art gallery. Prior to the opening of the exhibit, former CWLU member Katie Hogan interviewed feminist artist Mary Ellen Croteau who acted as curator for the show. Katie Hogan now works at the Heartland Cafe and has a Saturday morning radio show on community station WLUW.
