This piece has been in an exhibit (that's me in the middle picture!) for the past month and just came home yesterday. The show was sponsored by the Central Massachusetts chapter of the Women's Caucus for Art. It's a wonderful organization, and I heartily recommend getting involved in a local chapter. You can learn about the national organization and find a local chapter for yourself.
Our exhibit theme was "The Vessel" including all that term's many meanings and nuances. I was not alone in interpreting it as the female ability to give life, but there was a wide range of work, including actual physical vessels like ships, vases, and nests. It was a wonderful experience for me, my first show with this group, and even my husband had a good time at the opening!
