About the event

We  are thrilled to announce the opening reception of "M(y)otherwork," a  compelling  exhibition by the talented figurative painter Corynn  Kokolakis. Join us on Saturday, July 6, from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM for to  meet the artist and gain insight into her creative process. Corynn will  also give a short talk at 2:30 PM followed by Q & A.

"M(y)otherwork"  is a series of paintings that seek to show the maintenance and  emotional labor involved in mothering.   Kokolakis' skilled compositions  and vigorous brushwork deftly place the viewer in the Mama Bear's  chair, and it's looking down from that vantage point that the nuances of  caregiving and identity, are revealed, as if through a mother's gaze.

Corynn's  connection to the Haliburton Highlands runs deep, having formed lasting  memories through cottaging, paddling, and camping in the area over the  years. We are delighted to welcome her back to the community where her  journey as an artist began, first as an exhibitor at the Haliburton Art  and Craft Festival.

Having  recently completed her Master's Degree in Fine Arts at York University  last year, Corynn is just back from a three-week residency in the United  States, further honing her craft and vision. Be among the first to  glimpse her newest work!

Don't  miss this exclusive opportunity to engage with Corynn Kokolakis and  explore her thought-provoking exhibition. "M(y)otherwork" is a must-see  for art enthusiasts and anyone interested in the profound and often  unspoken aspects of being a "good mom".
