Blanc and ACRE are excited to present the work of Antonia B. Larkin and Jova Lynne for their show, Our Mother's Gardens. Crafted in dialogue with ACRE Curatorial Fellow, Gee Wesley, 2019 ACRE Residents Lynne and Larkin will show a collection of works that explore maternal kinship as a means through which to not only recover, but recover from, the legacies of grief, care, and resilience that define Black womanhood.
On August 20, from 3-6pm we invite you to come and celebrate their work for an opening reception at the gallery. As always it will be an opportunity to gather in the warmth and camaraderie of Blanc and to share, listen and engage with art, artists and good vibrations.
This exhibition is part of an ongoing relationship between ACRE and Blanc, which recognizes the important points of intersection needed to nurture a thriving and vibrant arts community in Chicago dedicated to collaboration, conversation and mutual support.
