Mother of All
A Celebration of Creative Resilience
Open from 6th - 15th October
Meet the artists opening: Saturday 7th October 3-6pm, 6th - 15th October
"Mother of All,” unites artists who have nurtured their creative practices amidst the responsibilities, challenges, and joys of motherhood. The curators at Blue on the Hill gallery set no other requirement except that our featured artists are mothers in any capacity, and that the submitted artworks adhere to the size limit of 50cm and under. This dimension limitation serves as a poignant commentary, spotlighting gender inequality that persists even seven decades after the women's liberation movement of the 1960s.
This 'salon' style group exhibition is a tribute to the remarkable contributions of artist mothers to the creative realm, demonstrating their unwavering commitment despite responsibilities and limited time. The Both gallery will transform into a space for reflection, creativity, and nurture.
This exhibition offers a journey through a diverse range of artistic disciplines, encompassing sculpture, digital art, mixed media, and painting. Through these varied mediums, BOTH Gallery shed light on the unique perspective that artist mothers bring to the world of creativity, enriching it with their distinctive experiences and insights.

Note: This was a collective endeavour from the time of conception to final installation; Anne had emergency surgery, Jac had Covid and Justine was in Cyprus at a funeral. Poignant reminder of why it's important o keep on supporting artists who have to slot their creative practice into a world of family responsibility.
