Amy Reidel "Enjoy Every Minute" Panel Discussion

  • Flood Plain 3151 Cherokee Street St. Louis, MO, 63118 United States (map)

Come see Amy Reidel and panel of artist/mothers discuss the conjunction of motherhood, art making, and generally existing as a woman in a male-dominated culture.  

From the artist: "My new exhibit at Flood Plain is a response to years of trying to keep up with a male dominated art world.  Now, after the birth of my daughter, which was a bodily and emotional trauma all it's own, I am eager to help move any topics which pertain to womxn artists further. For years I was resistant to the idea of family because it was put in my head that I would not be taken seriously as an artist. And I'm only 36 years old and went to school this millennium. I can't imagine what older generations of women were faced with in this regard. I sincerely hope you all did not have that same internal dialogue running in your minds but instead were empowered with your career AND family decisions."
