Meissner Fatigue 1M

Amy Meissner, Sonya Kelliher Combs, Keren Lowell, Hollis Mickey, Susan Joy Share, October Exhibit 2020- “Fragile Domestic”

This exhibition of 5 Alaska women artists roams a literal and emotional landscape, exploring the female experience within domestic spaces and our relationship to materials, women’s work and expectation. The work is driven by questions around the fragility of materials and time-based craft, the fragility of unsustainable perfection, the fragility of memory, history and utility. The resulting instinct sloughs all this to reveal a harder, less breakable core. This, we nurture. This, we feed. We are our mothers. We are not our mothers. Our voices are honed and heard in this skewed realm.
