Arts council exhibit honors mothers and makers

SUBMITTED PHOTO - This ceramic piece by Rosemary Tobiga titled Carmen is part of the Mothers & Makers exhibition to open May 1 at 510 Museum and ARTspace. The exhibit honors mothers and is sponsored by the Lake Oswego Womens Club.

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego will present the work of 11 female artists and leaders in Lake Oswego’s art community in “Mothers & Makers,” opening May 1 and continuing through May 22 at 510 Museum & ARTspace.

The exhibit is sponsored by the Lake Oswego Women’s Club as a tribute to Mother’s Day and with a nod to the long history of women as makers. From home-makers to weavers, to food gatherers and nurturers, women have held numerous roles inside the home as well as in the community throughout history.

Contemporary society proves no different for the need of women to be multi-taskers. This feminine attribute inspired the Arts Council to organize and curate an exhibition celebrating women and their many roles.

Participating artists include Rieko Warrens, Marilyn Davis, Margaret Snow Benoit, Sheri Richards, Carrie Kaufman, Carol Bresky, Marilyn Nycum, Rosalyn Kliot, Barbara McDonald, Lilo Sermol and Rosemary Tobiga.

An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. May 1 at 510 Museum & ARTspace, located at 510 First St. in downtown Lake Oswego. The gallery is open Tuesday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and by appointment.
