M.A.M.A. Issue 53 – Jessica Caldas

The Museum of Motherhood, the ProCreate Project, the Mom Egg Review present an international exchange of ideas and art. M.A.M.A. celebrates the notion of being “pregnant with ideas” in new ways. Words intersect with art and explore the wonder and the challenges of motherhood. These pathways between the creative, the literary, the digital, and the real, as well as the everyday: wherever you live, work, and play, the Art of Motherhood is made manifest.

Remote Artist Residency with Rachael Grad: This August at MoM

Rachael Grad is a mom of three and former lawyer who has studied and worked in the US, France, Italy, Hong Kong, and Toronto. Grad left practicing law to study painting full-time at the New York Studio School and New York University (NYU) before transferring to OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Trained as an observational painter, Grad has focused on colourful painting that blurs the distinction between abstract, figurative, and representational styles. Recently her art practice has expanded to incorporate digital painting and collage to further recreate her observational drawing and painting. Grad combines her experience as a mother, former lawyer, and traveler into her artwork, creating art that reflects parenting moments. Her current art series include “Motherhood Hit Me Like A Train” works on paper that use trains as paintbrushes and “Mommy Mayhem” digital collages and abstract expressionist paintings. The MoM Art Annex welcomes Rachael to a remote Residency during the month of August.
