MOTHER | Exhibit

Dec 2, 2022 | 5:00 - 7:00 PM Bunnell Street Arts Center | 106 W. Bunnell Ave. Homer, AK, 99603 

Seven Alaskan artist mothers present “MOTHER” at Bunnell Street Arts Center for the month of December. Exhibit programming will include performances, and a mending workshop. The exhibit opening is 5-7p on Friday, December 2nd and will commence with “Nurturing”, a performance by Myesha Callahan Freet at 5:45pm, followed by artist talks at 6pm. 

“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.”
