About this exhibition, from Alaskan Artist Mothers:

MOTHER A position, an act, a summoning, an expletive, a transition, an irreversibility. The  word conjures comfort, expectation, humility, defiance, entanglement,  lineage, disappointment, rage, and bliss. The state is simultaneously  verdant and mundane, a vein of generational knowledge and deep intuition  tempered by unknowing and unlearning.

MOTHER is created from within our mothering experience, but  also in response to our relationships with one another – sustenance,  balm, commitment, and reckoning.

We do this work to contextualize, remember, and honor all stages of  mothering. By couching our questions in reprieve and tenderness, we  reinforce connections to mothers who came before, to those seen  everyday, and to others who have yet to become.
