We Are very excited to open the 2018-19 year with a traveling Exhibition from Prof. Jessica Gardner at the Alexandria Campus title “Crowns”. From the release about the show.
“We are literally crowned by our mothers hips as infants in the womb, the role of motherhood might be described as a crowning moment for some.
The impacts that caring for children have on artist mothers expands beyond new time constraints and into physical, emotional, and spiritual crossings.
During the monumental shift of crossing into motherhood, artist mothers redefine who they are as humans, but also who they are as artists.
Cowns asked women to create work that reflects on their experiences through the currents of motherhood.”
The ceramic based works are on view until September 28th when there will be a closing reception with Professor Gardner in attendance to speak about the work.
