2020 - A Gallery Year In Review

This has been a year of many challenges and celebrations. Our community has pulled together and supported us in so many ways – online sales, in-person sales, curbside delivery, home delivery, GoFundMe contributions, personal contributions, City of Fenton DDA BOGO gift cards, smiles, words of encouragement, etc. We can't thank you enough for believing in us!

Our artists have continued on and excelled in their work during this pandemic. They continually amaze us with their talents. Without them, we would not be here. Thank you all for sharing your incredible work with us and believing in us as well.

Although two of our shows were canceled at the beginning of the shutdown, we were still able to have three others, Fenton Arts Council Member Show along with the virtual student show, Ability – Celebrating Resilience and The Art of Peggy Abrams.

 

We were fortunate enough to celebrate our one year anniversary with a Mardi gras party.  We also participated in An Event so Scary, Witches Night Out, Ladies Night Out, and Jinglefest with social distancing and safety protocols.

2020 brought three high school interns to the gallery – Claire Grob, Melanie Jackson, and Sophie Swift. We are truly fortunate to have (had) these young women with us!

 

There were a number of classes took place. We added acrylic pour, collage, fused glass, and more mixed media to the mix in 2020 along with our other classes.

As we move forward, we have many things planned for this coming year:

Survivor

Hear It, See It, Speak Out!

May we all remember how art has played an important part in everyone’s lives this year. While the livelihoods of artists in all capacities were heavily impacted, art was still produced and shared with one another from the symphony playing a concert to shows being done both in-person and virtual to people singing from their porches, art persisted and helped to heal us. Here is too looking forward and being able to attend art openings and shows, concerts, and theatrical plays!

The mission of Motherly Intercession is to provide a comprehensive system of support that is designed to break the cycle of intergenerational incarceration and save the lives of the children of incarcerated parents.

The vision for Motherly Intercession is “for the children of incarcerated parents to realize their parent’s destiny does not have to be their destiny, and to strive to chart a successful career path for themselves.”

Motherly Intercession provides emotional, social, and after-school academic support for these children.  The students receive transportation, a meal, homework help, and access to a computer.

The team has also made a positive impact inside the jail as well, with a program started called Bonding from A Distance Children’s Visitation Program. This bi-monthly visitation program allows the parent and child to have some quality time, including physical contact, during their visitation.

DISCLAIMER - It is not the intent of the Executive Board of Directors, Advisory Board, Staff, Volunteers, or the Supporters of Motherly Intercession to diminish the impact that the crimes committed by the incarcerated parent has made on our Community. We do not condone any action that does not fall within the guidelines of the law.
