MAMA looking for a home for Mother’s Day

IMG_9918

MAMA is currently on exhibit at WCSU in the Ruth Haas Library until the end of this month so if you live near the Danbury area I encourage you to get over there and take a look while you can. There has been a lot of buzz over it, which I’m thrilled about.

However, MAMA has no plans, as of yet after that. I cringe at the thought of all 11 pieces being stowed away back in my garage 🙁  I was REALLY hoping to find a place for the exhibit for Mother’s Day. I think this would make an awesome event for any gallery, shop, restaurant (whatever!) that wants to honor Mother’s Day with a special event. I can imagine some hor d’oeuvres (maybe even a whole dinner, or brunch!), wine, music… and this intriguing exhibit making for a unique event to take mom to on the only day of the year that’s just for her!

If anyone is interested, or has a lead on someone who might be, please contact me at ezaffis@gmail.com

Thanks!

MAMA coming to Danbury CT!!

I’ve been sitting on an announcement I’m really excited about; MAMA will be on display in the Ruth Hass Library located at Western Connecticut State University, midtown campus, for the entire month of March in celebration of Women’s History Month!! I feel really honored, and blessed when I think of all the awesome people that I’ve met over the last few years that have enriched my life, encouraged and supported me. This opportunity was made possible by one of those people <3

In addition to my art being on display, I will be giving a talk, a power point presentation, on the afternoon of 3/11 titled; “Birth as a Creative Process”. I will be discussing how I used my experiences as a mother and childbirth nurse as a guide to navigating the challenges of creating the art exhibit, having been a total novice. I will also talk about the history and culture surrounding childbirth and why choice and autonomy in birth is a women’s rights issue. Exact details regarding time and location TBA.

In honor of MAMA’s second show (and because I had one more mannequin left), I am working on a new sculpture; the 11th, and probably last, installment in the MAMA series titled, “The Center”. Here is a sneak peak of it, in progress…

The Center, in progress

I hope you will attend if you live near the Danbury Area. Even if you can’t make the lecture, try and make your way over to the Ruth Hass Library sometime in the month of March to see MAMA on display!
