The name says it all: The gallery (and nonprofit organization of the same name) presents innovative, original contemporary art by women of all stripes. Since 1978, Women & Their Work has made establishing a space for the visual legacy of female artists more than a mission; it's made it a vision. The 1,700-square-foot gallery showcases one artist at a time, with each artist in full control of everything from wall color to room size, making it perfect for site-responsive works and beautifully focused presentations. Yearly open calls ensure that programming ranges in material and content. The space also features a gift shop every bit as classy and professional as the gallery itself.
