Mamas in the Hood Exhibition - Opening Night and Progress

Opening night at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery was great, lots of friends, colleagues and family came along to share this festive occasion.
Racheal Lee a good friend and artist, kindly took many photos of the night and Uta Heidelauf added some to the BAD Blog - thanks guys! CLICK HERE for photos of Opening Night.
Anita West's talk was inspirational, Anita has built a sustainable art career over 25 years whilst raising a family and understands the extra commitment and dedication needed. Anita shared her experiences to pursue creative endeavours amongst the backdrop of caring for children.
You can also read more about the layered meanings behind the "Mamas in the Hood" exhibition by visiting Candice Hearne's Blog or clicking here - Essay by Helen Sturgess.
Last Saturday, we did our artist talks and screened the film documentary "Who Does She Think She Is" at the Gallery to a group of interested people and discussed the issues addressed in the documentary which features five fierce women who refuse to choose between mothering or working.
There is still more to come, next Tuesday, 25 October I will be running a workshop on how to create Erosion/Corrosion Bundles and Candice and Sandra Landlot will also be running workshops too - CLICK HERE for the program of workshops at the Pine Rivers Art Gallery.
