Mothers and Daughter

March 31 – April 11, 2015

Alabama is known as being one of the most conservative states in the south. It is also known as a hub for southern culture and art. Just by the nature of their womanhood, women artists in the state are subverting the norm and paving new ways for an emerging artistic community. In addition, many must juggle motherhood and other expectations of womanhood with their artistic careers. Director Ava Lowrey explores this community and their shared struggles and triumphs, while also taking a more critical lens to look at the sacrifices that her own mother made, essentially abandoning her own artistic aspirations. Together, Ava and Tamara share intimate conversations as Tamara steps back into the art world and Ava speaks with women who share her mother’s experiences. In addition, this exhibit also shares the artwork of the three artists featured in the film.
