In this year's annual group exhibit — "Fractured Portrayals of Motherhood", 23 Artist-Mothers from MAWA explore the fracture, fragmentation, and imperfection that is inherent in the art of mothering and motherhood. Their works delve into the experiences between the socially-imposed images of the celebrated and the censured mother. Responding and even rebelling against one-sided celebrations of motherhood, these artist-mothers perform critical and necessary work which question common-sense assumptions and remind us that disguised in the munda...neness of mothering, there are complex energies at play, energies that are life-altering in many ways.
