DESCRIPTION

Ceres Gallery is pleased to present Meet My Uterus with work by 24 artists in painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing and mixed-media, in all manner serious, humorous, political, or not, realist to abstract and everything in between. Who would have ever envisioned the need to fight for, of all things, contraception in 2013?

Women's reproductive rights are being eroded. Because of government interference with women's healthcare decisions, these women artists felt the need to express their concern in the way they know best. They have gotten creative with the image, the shape, the form, the essence of the uterus and we have presented them all in an exciting and visually arresting format of high density and over-the-top repetition of just one thing: the uterus.
