Exhibit highlights Mother Artists
Shaker Heights – April 3, 2017. Shaker Community Gallery, a new arts organization, opens its first show, Balancing Work, Family, and Creativity: Mother Artists, with a reception on Saturday, April 22, from 4 to 7 pm at Christ Episcopal Church, 3445 Warrensville Center Road in Shaker Heights.
The group of residents behind Shaker Community Gallery wants its presence within the Van Aken District, Shaker’s new downtown, to signal that art and art lovers are valued and warmly welcomed here.
The first show features the art of Nicole Condon-Shih, Lori Kella, Kari Russell-Pool, and Nicole Schneider. The exhibit is a salute to the artwork of mothers, those who engage in the daily gymnastics of both professional creative endeavor and childrearing. Perhaps it is therefore not surprising that their works “speak to various dualities found in science, social consciousness, form, and perception,” says exhibit curator and SCG Board member Scott Goss.
The Mother Artists exhibit continues through June 3 and is open to the public on Wednesdays from 6 to 9 pm, Saturdays from 12 to 4 pm, and by appointment by contacting Leslye Arian at (216) 926-8842 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
