Motherhood to Mother Goddess Opens Tonight at the Akus Gallery

I’ve not exactly cultivated a reputation as a particularly motherly type, but I’m proud to have my work included along with that of Amina Begum Ahmed, Siona Benjamin, Anjali Deshmukh, Peggy Blood, and Suzanne Jackson in the exhibition opening tonight at the Akus Gallery, Eastern Connecticut State University, Motherhood to Mother-Goddess: Transcendence from Self to Absolute, curated by visiting Fulbright Scholar Neeta Naique.
