Women’s Exhibit: “Motherhood”

February 26 - April 6

The spiritual, phychic, visceral and transformative relationship between a mother and child cannot be understated. All have unique connections to a mother, whether biological or adoptive. Mothers all have indescribable connections to their children. Humans continue to explore and express the idea of this sacred relationship today exactly because it is so complex and varying. The role of Mother may be filled by many throughout our lives including our grandmothers, teachers, and mentors. Mothers of multiple children cannot compare their relationships between children, nor predict how those relationships can expand, retract and transform over their lifetimes.

The Josephy Center has invited women artists to contemplate the idea and experiences of motherhood in all its forms. They may be cathartic expressions of the pain and challenges these relationships can inflict or beautiful celebrations of joy and triumph. All mediums were welcomed in our exploration of the powerful and transcendent idea of motherhood.

The exhibit is curated by Aimee Jungmann. You may vote for the people’s choice below. All mediums are eligible.
