Hidden Mother Photo Exhibition at CPR


The long exposure times of 19th Century portrait photography required some imaginative strategies by photographers and parents to coax young children into sitting still for the duration of the shot – thus the classic vintage Hidden Mother photograph was born. For this exhibition, a select group of Northeast Ohio artists was invited to bring the Hidden Mother idea into the 21st Century:

Laura Ruth Bidwell, Darrelle Anne Centuori, Jane Critchlow, Hadley K Conner, Joan Deveney, Helen Harry, Diana Hlywiak, Jocelynn Hunter, Honey Lazar, Liz Maugans, Heather Murray, Nancy McEntee, Barbara Merritt, Michelle Marie Murphy, Molly Pamela, Cynthia Penter, Deborah Pinter, Penny Rakoff, Toni Starinsky, and Shari Wilkins.

Join us for the opening reception, FREE and open to the public, on Friday, March 14, from 5-9pm.

On Saturday, March 29, at 1:00pm, we will be featuring a Gallery Talk with Laura Larson, Associate Professor of Art at Ohio University.

Our Gallery hours are Tuesday, 12-6pm; Wednesday, 3-6pm; and Thursday through Saturday, 12-6pm.
