Motherhood is perverse. There are institutions in place that try to place motherhood into something tangible, something measurable, something feeble. I make images that reflect how western society perceives mothers with their children and how I feel towards others seeking to psychologically harm and classify me when I'm with my daughter. Women and children need to learn early how to protect themselves. We need to learn early how to tune into the survival instinct. I am an animal. I want her to know she is an animal, in the best most protective sense of the word. She is strong, she is beautiful, she is dangerous. The work is a series of photographs each depicting a feeling you may get when you are a mother. I have chosen these pieces because I think they best exemplify my experience as a mother. I am hoping that by showing my feelings about the matter the photographs will strike a chord with other mothers and begin a much needed conversation about women supporting other women. About our western society as a whole supporting mothers.

 

HVCA Supports Michigan Artists with Monthly Gallery Exhibitions

 
Each of the artists selected to exhibit in the gallery receives a month long venue to display and sell their works. At the opening of each exhibition each artist has the ability to interact with the general public at a special artist reception. 

HVCA fulfills two critical goals and objectives with each exhibition: 
(1) the enhancement of art appreciation for our constituent base and citizens in the region and 
(2) providing artistic opportunities for regional artists where they are able to display and sell their works. 

These monthly gallery exhibitions not only promote and assisting Michigan artists, but affords HVCA the ability provide a tangible resource that strengthens the community.
 

THANK YOU to the following pARTner Sponsors
