Gala Open­ing Fri­day, May 3rd from 6 to 9PM!

The Artists Moth­ers Group at MAWA presents an exhi­bi­tion of dai­ly art­work. Moth­er­ing takes a lot of ener­gy, and art-mak­ing is often pushed aside. As a group we assigned the chal­lenge of mak­ing a sketch, poem, sculp­ture, pho­to­graph, or paint­ing dai­ly for a month. The incen­tive of the group enabled us all to give dai­ly time for our art and to devel­op our ideas in depth. Some moth­ers con­tin­ued the prac­tice of an art-work a day for many months. Some of the dai­ly work inspired larg­er works and more fin­ished pieces.

This exhi­bi­tion explores how ideas and images devel­op over time and how bits and pieces can build a whole with the dai­ly prac­tice of cre­ation. There is an over­all voic­ing of Moth­er­ing, from the embed­ding of per­son­al­i­ty into stuffy-toys to mak­ing medals for moth­er­ing achieve­ments.

A spe­cial thanks to MAWA for encour­ag­ing and sup­port­ing this group of Artist Moth­ers.

The Artist Moth­ers’ Group at MAWA

This group of artist moth­ers who refuse to choose between moth­er­ing and artis­tic pro­duc­tion holds infor­mal, month­ly meet­ings to exper­i­ment with art mate­ri­als, share and cri­tique our art work, and dis­cuss con­cerns, ideas, inspi­ra­tion, and strate­gies for jug­gling art­mak­ing and moth­er­ing. When we get togeth­er we bring snacks – and our favourite mate­ri­als to make col­lage, still life, poet­ry, and col­lab­o­ra­tive art. Vis­it us on Face­book!
