Please join us on Saturday, 8/24 from 4-6 pm for a reception and talk with the artists of our current exhibition, While it lasts.
Our summer exhibition is a meditation on the pleasures and pains of parenting while working as an artist, featuring linoleum prints by Ellen Shattuck Pierce and wire sculptures by CW Roelle.
While it lasts references the oft-repeated mantra offered to new parents: enjoy your children’s childhood while it lasts. The phrase is bittersweet, a reminder of the special joy of raising young children and how quickly that time passes. For artists Roelle and Pierce, this seemingly simple task of enjoying one’s children becomes much more complicated. As the parents of young sons, Roelle and Pierce must face the daily challenge of simultaneously maintaining their place within a family and their identity as individual artists.
