Labors: An Exhibition Exploring the Complexities of Motherhood

Monday, February 26 – Friday, March 23, 2018 (Closed March 12 – 16 for spring break)

Reception: Monday, February 26, 2018 from 12:35 – 1:30 pm with an informal curator’s talk beginning at 12:35 pm. 

The Pearl Conard Gallery at Ohio State Mansfield is proud to present Labors, curated by Kate Shannon, Associate Professor in the Department of Art at Ohio State. The exhibition is made possible through a Coca-Cola Critical Difference for Women Grant for Research on Women, Gender, and Gender Equity from the Department of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Ohio State University. Shannon says, “I am a visual artist and a new mother. As I begin to examine this life transition artistically, I am seeking out artists who address motherhood in their work and integrate art-making with tedious parenting responsibilities. Labors is an exhibition that explores the complexities of motherhood while giving mother-artists a platform to share their joys, practices, anxieties, and traumas.”
