humble beginnings

Kimberly Miller is the Founder of FemArt Gallery, Inc. and currently the President of the Advisory Committee. 

 

As she was approaching her graduation with her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of North Florida in 2017 she had read an article written by Guerilla Girls, an anonymous group of feminists, female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world.

 

Realizing that there is a bias towards women in Fine Arts she invited 20 colleagues to join her in an effort to correct and repair the social bias towards women artists. Three women answered her call and two of them, Karen Alber and Stephanie Andrews, joined her in creating a non-profit organization that would support women artists through exhibition opportunities, educational programs and bringing awareness of the myriad cultural contributions by women artists through community outreach.

the journey...

Since March 2017, FemArt has grown very strong.  The first exhibition consisted of 17 women artists who became the first members of FemArt.  Since that early beginning, FemArt has provided over 100 exhibitions with over 200 artists exhibiting and has grown our membership to over 100 members.  This includes the on-line exhibitions during the pandemic and the very supportive offer of a home gallery space offered by The Nest Coworking.  Having our very first permanent gallery home at The Nest Coworking space at 476 Riverside Avenue has provided a monthly exhibit continuously scheduled for 2023 thanks to our FemArt Board Exhibit Chair, Kim Hurt.  Whether it is sponsors, donors, volunteers, Board members, or our artists...we have had great opportunities provided to FemArt for continual growth.

 

FemArt continues to find innovative ways to help women develop their art skills and be recognized and valued in our society. One of Ms. Miller’s visions is to have a gallery with studio spaces and offer childcare in the building for mothers who want to pursue their art careers but understand the importance of care for their children. This is proposed so that a woman does not have to choose between a career and role as a mother any more than a man needs to choose between fatherhood and career. She also wants to provide art therapy in-house for those women who have been traumatized by sexual assault or have mental health concerns that may keep them from being their most creative selves.
