For ramp access, please call Womanspace ahead of time or upon arrival. (At present, the lower level is not accessible for people with walking disabilities.) To inquire whether a program is located in an accessible space, a person needing such consideration should mention that when registering.
WILLIAM REIF GALLERY
The William Reif Gallery, in our main building, is our premier art gallery and meeting space. Formerly known as the Fountain View Room, this space was renamed in 2013 in honor of Bill, a major Womanspace benefactor. The William Reif Gallery has six exhibits a year. Artists interested in exhibiting are encouraged to e-mail a few samples of their work (JPG format) along with a bio to the Gallery Committee.
Gallery2Go began in 2007 as a small gift gallery at the entrance to Womanspace. After winning an earned income business plan competition offered by the Northern Illinois Center for Nonprofit Excellence (NICNE), we have brought Gallery2Go literally out of the closet! Now we have a shop of over 180 square feet displaying small, unique art and gifts by many talented Womanspace artists andGallery To Go Womanspace Rockfordartisans. We also carry EarthMatters bags, CDs, DVDs, books, and greeting cards.
Think of Gallery2Go when you need an original, artistic card or gift. Your grateful recipient won’t be disappointed!
