Curatorial Statement

SDAC is excited to share with you a group exhibition, celebrating the art of six local women and their works inspired by motherhood. motHER/child will be shown online from June 22, 2020- August 14, 2020, at www.michaelinesander.com. As we move this show online in what was previously planned as an in-person experience, we want to find ways in which the audience can connect to the imagery digitally. Feel the fabric of the soft sculptures by Sarah Dolan, see the details and layers in the collages by Shantell Lewis and be able to process the content of the works by all the artists in this show without being physically in front of the pieces in an alternative gallery setting where we normally would meet you.

motHER/child is a very important show that we have been putting together for over a year to bring to our audience. We want to share stories through the artwork about the journey to and through motherhood. Everyone has their own experiences and struggles some heartbreaking and some full of joy. All of these stories are important and should be heard. We are here creating a space for discussion and to share in the admiration of motherhood for all of those who are mothers, were mothers, or are still trying to become a mother.

Through experiencing these women’s artwork, we hope to open up the conversation about this experience in life - how it doesn’t all go according to plan, how it’s not all perfect social media approved photos. This is life, and this is the real documentation of that. Please share, please ask questions, please listen to your bodies - women are amazing and so strong- we created this show as a celebration of that.
