I have a soft spot for mothers in restaurants.  I remember that struggle eat, feed the child that wasted all their good behavior in the waiting area, try to manage the mashed up mess and smile at the wait staff and hope they think you’ve got it all under control.  I don’t know why so many mothers feel the need to sustain the illusion that being a mother is easy.  We know better.  We are better.  It is hard.  We are up to the task.  This next Call wants all the facets of “mother” we can conjure.  Up to the task?

Check out this Call for Entries from Woman Made Gallery (Chicago, IL) for Is There a Mother in the House?  $30 entry & only open to female-identifying artists. There is nothing more widely-open to interpretation than the concept of “mother”.  Show them your viewpoint…
