August Feature Artist: 'Holding Space' by Jamie Smith
Join us Sunday August 7th, 4-6pm for the Opening Reception. Meet the artist and check out her beautiful collection.
Holding Space explores the artists relationship with her body, the vases represent the life-giving potential of the female body—but sadly its’ potential is not always realized, and so some are shown full and some empty. Many of the vases are drawn from antique Pomegranate Fertility Vases from the Chinese Qing Dynasty. Many works include eggs symbolizing hope, as the artist went through the process of freezing her eggs in hopes of later creating a pregnancy. The egg also acts as a symbol of female empowerment over ones body and the privilege to have the ability to choose one’s own fertility journey in a small way. The work offers beauty even in the midst of difficulty and hope in the midst of the unknown.
