Hearts on Fire and The Mother We Share: 

A Microfundraiser for Gaza and Open Call Exhibition of 10-15 emerging and contemporary artists: May 25th 5-9 at Good Mother Studio, 1955 Broadway Oakland CA, 94612 

Hearts on Fire and The Mother We Share is an open call exhibition of 10-15 emerging and contemporary artists whose work explores the universal, mythological, archetypal, personal or spiritual interpretations of The Mother We Share, love, hate, take for granted, rediscover or recreate individually and collectively through art making. Hearts On Fire is, in part, a metaphor of the artist and audience as both creator/destroyer, as well as one's heightened awareness to the fragility of life and shared humanity. This collection of work invites subject matter that associates with, but is not limited to the element of fire, the color red, and all sources of love, resistance, grief, rage, joy, rebirth and renewal. It is through this intersection of free form associations and storytelling connected to the Mother We Share, that art becomes alchemized as a life force. Like Gaia, Mother of Earth, The Mother We Share is ephemeral and boundless yet palpable and potent amidst the imminent shadows of death and decay. Hearts on Fire and The Mother We Share question who, what and where we attribute blame towards during times of mass destruction or the ‘fall of man’. Was Pandora really the dangerous woman who birthed chaos and discord? If Hope remains locked within her notorious box of all evils maybe now is a time as ever to release its vitality and spirit. 

100% of all proceeds will be donated to the Gaza Mutual Aid Collective a grassroots organization of women within the states supporting the distribution of humanitarian aid and compensation directly to families and individuals in Gaza. You can learn more about the Gaza Mutual Aid Collective by following @gazamutualaid @anthropologicalexchange and @lalph_rauren for more updates on the primary projects GMAC is supporting such as community kitchens distributing food in Rafah, water distribution and cash distribution to displaced families.
