A Virtual Exhibition of Works by Artist Mothers

May 7 - August 28, 2021, on Facebook and Instagram

Artist mothers juggle motherhood and the balance of their artistic practice. Caregiving can be associated with not being taken seriously as artists. Sadly, some women give up artmaking completely. Some return once the nest becomes empty. Some refuse to choose. Regardless we remain creators.
The acts and demands of child-rearing are exhausting and challenging, but we make it work.


Mothers stand united. We are giving back, through nurturing and the maintaining of relationships. Her lessons are strong, encouraging and hopeful. We follow her example, educating our children, promoting self-care and love for her. We protect by tapping into our artistic arsenal of resources while sharing our collective experiences.
Mother Earth provides all we need to survive and thrive in these difficult times.
