Thou Art Mom

Thou Art Mom is an exploration of motherhood and creativity, and how the two influence one another. For many women the decision to have a child is fraught with conflict about what it will require them to give up and how it will change their identity. Never is this conflict more acute than for women who are artists and often already juggling many aspects of their personal and professional lives. Curated by Susan Evans Grove

In every generation, the dining table has been more than a mere surface on which to serve food. In a broader sense, the table has been a silent observer of changing ideals and beliefs.How do we eat, play, work, think, organize, gather, and converse at and around this important icon of American life? What does it mean to come to the table today? Co-curators Brittany Venturella and Annmarie Ventura explore the idea of the dining table with all its various implications, both past and present, through contemporary art.
