We are excited to announce our newest Guest Artist, Tara Blackwell. Tara is a mixed media pop artist leveraging the tension between fun and social commentary in her artwork. Incorporating nostalgic pop culture, she will be working with her daughter to explore contemporary feminist issues.
There is always plenty to do around this house! At MoM, we continue to be actively reviewing multiple infrastructure definitions, fundraising initiatives, and plans for growth. In the meantime, creating compelling content and opportunities to connect virtually and in-person are essential. JOIN us (Wed) JUNE 22 6:30-8PM EST for a community talk and discussion on Zoom at our NEW COMMUNITY Online. We invite you to pre-register for this FREE workshop. RSVP on the community site with Dr. Roksana Badruddoja, and more about Memberships, Ally Letters, and Healing through the Generations.
Each of my daughters was born in traumatic circumstances. My first was born 6 weeks premature and my second was born in mid-2020 during the height of the first Covid wave. Each time after giving birth, I experienced postpartum depression. My body had done incredible feats, but it now felt foreign. Over time I realized I needed to regain a balance between caring for my daughters and caring for my mental health. My art practice has become an outlet to cope with, at times, crippling anxiety. It is a meditation on what it means to be an artist, a parent, a woman.
