Artist Mothers: Nurture and Neglect

The Artist Mothers at MAWA invite you to the exhibition Nurture and Neglect 
at MAWA, 611 Main St, until December 31.
  
Contributing Artists: Carolina Araneda, Sherry Aubin, Charlene Brown, Sandra Brown, Jocelyn Chorney, Sarah Collard, Karen Cornelius, Melanie Dennis Unrau, Mary Ferguson, Brenna George, Arwen Helene, Susan Knowling, Helen Lyons, Lisa Lysack, 
Rose Montgomery and Allison Moore.

When we nurture one thing we neglect another.  When caring for our children, we can neglect ourselves.  We let the laundry and the dishes pile up to make time for artmaking.  It sometimes seems impossible to be both mother and artist, so we negotiate.

Group Meeting
Monday, January 9, 2012, 6:30 - 9:00 pm at MAWA

The Artist Mothers Group at MAWA would like to extend an invitation to all artist mothers to come and meet other women who embrace both mothering and artistic production. This peer-based group meets on the first Monday of each month. 
Meetings are relaxed and informal. The group experiments with art materials, critiques each other’s work, and shares snacks, concerns, ideas, inspiration, strategies and support for those who juggle the tricky life of artmaking and mothering.
