Coming to Concourse Gallery

Mother Artists at Work: Laboring

April 28-May 20, 2011

Opening Reception Friday, April 29th, 2-5:00pm

The Cultural Arts Division is pleased to present Mother Artists at Work: Laboring on display April 28-May 20 in the Concourse Gallery, Municipal Services Center 3600 Tremont Road. Mother Artists at Work explore, "laboring," a theme playing on the dual meaning of the process of becoming a mother as well as the toiling of an artist. Featuring works in 2-D & 3-D mixed media, painting, enameling, fiber and photography. The mission of MAW, a non-profit association of mothers working in the arts, is to support and promote artists who are mothers through networking, professional development, and exhibit opportunities, as they work to keep career and family in balance.

Join us April 29th at 2:24 pm, during the Mother Artists at Work: Laboring opening reception, for a screening of Who Does She Think She Is? Academy Award Winning film-maker Pamela Tanner Boll examines some of the most pressing issues of our time; parenting and work, partnering and independence, economics and art. This film follows five women who refuse to choose between working and mothering. A roundtable discussion following the film will feature artists from Mother Artists at Work: Laboring and the previous Concourse Gallery exhibit Image - Self: Women in Art, discussing issues covered in the film.
