Event Details

Broadcaster, journalist and author Clover Stroud will be In Conversation with artist Amy Shuckburgh exploring the many and varied aspects of motherhood.  The event starts at 7pm in the gallery at 25 Blythe Road, the doors will open at 6.30pm. 

Clover is currently writing a book on motherhood and Amy's paintings and drawings as well as sculptures by Arabella Brooke on that theme will be on exhibition in the gallery. Discussions will pivot around the topic of motherhood -  exploring the question of identity and how motherhood reshapes you as a person; its 'confusing pleasure' - the physical and mental challenges, the resilience required, the nerves needed.  Also, how motherhood affects creativity, and vice versa, with references to Clover's writing and the art works.

Clover has written  'Motherhood is such a massive, strange process, during which absolutely everything in the world seems to happen, and also nothing at all. I struggle with that dichotomy a bit: no other activity in my life takes me from the pits of despair to the heights of joy and fascination, several times a day, sometimes several times an hour, quite like motherhood does.'
