OPENING 12 MAY AT
THE ANNE C. FISHER GALLERY, GEORGETOWN
Washington, DC 3 May 2006. “MOTHER is a multifaceted, multimedia exploration of motherhood,” states Anne C. Fisher. The exhibition opens on Mother’s Day weekend (12 May and continues through 9 June). MOTHER opens with a reception on Friday, 12 May, 6-8pm. Other receptions are Friday, 19 May, 6-8pm and Friday, 2 June, 6-8pm.
MOTHER features new work by 10 area artists who are affiliated with the Anne C. Fisher Gallery- Joan Belmar, Beth Cartland, Tory Cowles, Ellen Hill, Patricia Secco, Laura Seldman, Sandra Sugar, Camille Mosely-Pasley, Claudia Vess and Marcie Wolf-Hubbard. A wide range of media is used and combined in MOTHER, including painting, collage, other mixed media works, printmaking and photography.
MOTHER reflects a variety of perspectives on motherhood, from Secco’s mandala, the archetypal mother and Vess’ ancient symbolic mother vessels to Belmar’s abstract collaged series of mothers and Cartland’s, Cowles’ and Sugar’s expressionistic mothers. From Hill’s aviary mother and Wolf-Hubbard’s collaged paintings incorporating family photos and text to Mosely-Pasley’s mother and infant portraiture from her upcoming book and Seldman’s intimate photographs, including one of her own mother’s aged and bejeweled hand.
