Motherhood is at the core of our existence. For this exhibition we are inviting artists to celebrate “Motherhood” as a way of honoring Mother’s Day this year. Mothers and motherhood have been celebrated by artists from the beginning of humanity. From Celtic statues of Venus, the Sumerian Goddess Ishtar, and Holy Mary Mother of God depicted in many paintings of the Madonna, to a modern era of mystical fantasy, sci-fi interpretations, and the new age symbolism of birth, rebirth and the continuity of the species. This theme is not limited to human “motherhood’ nor is it limited to the depiction of mother with child.
