Hidden Mother: Reimagined
March 14 – April 26, 2014
The long exposure times of 19th Century portrait photography required some imaginative strategies by photographers and parents to coax young children into sitting still for the duration of the shot – thus the classic vintage Hidden Mother photograph was born. For this exhibition, a select group of Northeast Ohio artists was invited to bring the Hidden Mother idea into the 21st Century:
Laura Ruth Bidwell, Darrelle Anne Centuori, Jane Critchlow, Hadley K Conner, Joan Deveney, Helen Harry, Diana Hlywiak, Jocelynn Hunter, Honey Lazar, Liz Maugans, Heather Murray, Nancy McEntee, Barbara Merritt, Michelle Marie Murphy, Molly Pamela, Cynthia Penter, Deborah Pinter, Penny Rakoff, Toni Starinsky, and Shari Wilkins.
