Women+ Art Show at Baycrest
"Motherhood Hit Me Like a Train, Cross-Country" Paintings On View
Two large framed abstract artworks from my "Motherhood Hit Me Like a Train, Cross-Country" series are on view in the Baycrest gallery space from now, June 2023, through October 2023. Both original watercolour on paper paintings measure 40" x 40" framed in maple wood frames.
The WOMEN+ art exhibition draws from the extensive collection of the Ontario Jewish Archives and curated contemporary artwork intended to honour and celebrate Jewish women in the arts, throughout history and today.
This vivid display of extraordinary talent illustrates the diversity not only of mediums of artistic expression such as painting, sculpture, photography, works on paper and jewelry, but also reflects the unique perspectives of Jewish women artists. Themes uncovered in this exhibition range from Jewish traditions, religious and celebrations, to reflecting on motherhood and documenting the memory of time spent with family and loved ones, abstract compositions and materials influenced from travel, and more.
Featuring Contemporary Artists Rosalie Sharp, Pedie Wolfond, Gina Godfrey, Ina Gilbert, Samantha Goldman, Rachael Grad, Rochelle Rubinstein, Melanie Siegel, and Kim Smiley.
