“One With the Mess,” a photograph from Stamps Lecturer Emilia White’s Parent Skins series is included in Painting At Night, a new exhibition on view at Collar Works in Troy, NY through July 31, 2022.
Stamps Faculty, Emilia White is currently exhibiting her Parent Skins series, titled, One with the Mess, in the Painting At Night [exhibition/show] juried by Judith Brauna at the Collar Works in Troy, NY.
The exhibition’s title originated in reaction to a New York Times article stating, “You can’t paint at night in your kitchen and hope to be a good artist.” In response to this statement, juror Judith Braun replied that “Not only has the Covid-19 pandemic proven that all serious artists will work wherever they can, but great art has always come from difficult circumstances. The authenticity and soul of any endeavor is born out of the drive and desire to express oneself against all odds. I don’t for one minute believe that kids and kitchen tables are hurdles artists who are mothers cannot jump. Mothers have their hands and hearts and heads full, but they are the pioneers of making it work.”
The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Artist/Mother Podcast, and is up from May 27-July 31, 2022. A 3D exhibition tour can be viewed online.
