Description: This exhibit, entitled "The Vessel", will feature Central Massachusetts Chapter of the Womens Caucus members visual responses to the theme presented. Simply put, vessels are containers, which can be portable or immovable, revered or common, decorated or plain, mammoth or diminutive. In the material world, nests, coffins, shells, vases, ships, houses, cups, pitchers, wells, and urns are vessels. In the symbolic world, vessels represent the source of life, salvation, woman, potency, love offered, a protective womb, and hope of rebirth. Cross-cultural symbols for vessels abound; in China, for example, a basket of flowers signifies hope. This exhibit will feature two-dimensional artwork that takes the viewer to the crossroads between the material and the symbolic.
