duPont Gallery
Opening Reception: October 25, 5-7pm

Crowns: an exhibition of ceramic works curated by Jessica Gardner
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’s established 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.

All events are free and open to the public
Gallery hours: Tues-Fri 10am- 4pm, Sat/Sun 1-4pm
