What: Crowns: An Exhibition of Ceramic Works curated by Jessica Gardner
Who: University of Mary Washington Galleries
Where: UMW, DuPont Gallery
When: October 25 – December 2
Description: While many artists have made works about relationships and their lives in general, this exhibition seeks to explore women’s specific experience in motherhood. Inviting women, who’ve established a body of work lends itself to evolving and exploring the relationships formed in motherhood: relationships to self, to children, to spouses, to other mothers and so forth. Each of these artists publicly discusses her role as a mother and the impact motherhood has on her studio practice, whether it be direct collaborations with her child/children or shifts in the body of work created. Also, each artist represents a different stage in the experience of motherhood.
This exhibition is featuring works by Stephanie DeArmond, Carole Epp, Kathryne Fisher, Jessica Gardner, Eva Kwong, Rhonda Willers, Janis Mars Wunderlich, Summer Zickefoose.
