Gallery Talk & Reception
Saturday, June 5, 2021
Join us for the closing reception of The Art of Motherhood on Saturday, June 5th from 4-6PM in the gallery. Artist talks will begin at 4:30PM.
Art by Holly Graham, Brittany Anne Jarboe Jennings, Meena Khalili, Jocelyn Mathewes, Meena Matocha, Laura Wennstrom, Emilia White, and Alynda Worrell.
The Art of Motherhood features artwork created by 8 artists—seven mothers and one daughter—whose range of experiences give a glimpse into the complexity and beauty of motherhood. Their work reflects on humorous changes during pregnancy and on difficult ones postpartum with nursing and depression. One piece remembers the grief of infertility and miscarriage. Other works show the joy and wonder of seeing their children grow, as well as the struggles with self-identity and isolation felt as a parent. They depict the simple moments of being together and the prayers and longings held for their children’s lives.
