Paradigm Gallery + Studio presents The Mother Artist, a group exhibition featuring contemporary artists that are shaping the culture of the future. Creative ambition and motherhood are the threads that tie these artists to historic powerhouses like Ruth Asawa, Elizabeth Catlett, and Alice Neel. The collective artistic practice is strengthened by the lessons learned during nurturing and caregiving for new generations. Throughout history and through modern times, conventional thinking suggests that women can only be successful as mothers or as artists, but not as both. This exhibition champions artist mothers as pivotal members that push the canon forward while maneuvering family dynamics. "The Mother Artist" exhibition will be on view on the third floor of the Paradigm Arts Building (12 N 3rd St) from April 20 through May 5, 2024, with a public opening reception on Friday, May 3rd from 6:00-8:00 pm.

This exhibition was curated to accompany the release of Catherine Ricketts' new book, The Mother Artist: Portraits of Ambition, Limitation, and Creativity.
