“Spells” Opening Reception

CREATE Community Studios
70B Beekman St., Saratoga Springs | 5 – 8 p.m. 

New work by regional painter, sculptor, and installation artist Tara Hughes as part of the international initiative: Taking Up Space, a grassroots female focused community global art exhibition.  This show entitled Spells, is a culmination of 2D and 3D work made over the last two years as Tara Hughes tried to process the nature of motherhood. The process and the final imagery reference themes of personal emotional trauma around Covid-19, the recording and honoring of domestic labor and the toll of motherhood during the limbo of a pandemic. The work will be shown alongside “Pictures In Health” an annual show curated by C.R.E.A.T.E. createcommunitystudios.org
