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

The exhibition features floor-to-ceiling vinyl panels and decals that the artist has designed—transforming the gallery into the interior of an ideal, modern home. As the exhibition title suggests, Johnson envisions a world in which the home is nostalgic and familiar, yet, also reduced to an empty space existing simply to house various things.

Two children from upper middle-class Brooklyn families get into a schoolyard tussle and their parents meet one evening to discuss the incident. While the evening begins with polite pleasantries and careful chit chat, it veers suddenly off course in a rum-fueled fishtail of epic proportions as the adults, themselves, devolve into bickering children. Yasmina Reza hilariously and savagely strips her characters down to their cores, giving them the green light to drop the niceties and take off the proverbial gloves. God of Carnage is a comic masterpiece born of red-hot tempers, the best of intentions, and humanity at its most primal.

“. . . ferociously funny . . . . terrifically potent with lip-smacking gusto . . .” –The Wall Street Journal
