Mother lode: a principal vein or zone of gold or silver ore, or colloquially the real/imaginary origin of something valuable or in great abundance. [Wikipedia]
The aim of this mentoring day is to provide an opportunity for artists who are mothers, at all stages of motherhood, to meet together and share ideas and strategies for surviving as artists and to develop some basic tools which will help them make a plan to build or maintain a sustainable arts practice.
Judith Alder is an artist and mother with almost 20 years experience of working in the arts. She has exhibited her work with museums and galleries across the UK including The Freud Museum, London and Towner, Eastbourne. She is an active member of the East Sussex arts community and was visiting lecturer in Fine Art at The University of Brighton from 2013 - 2017. Alongside her arts practice she has organised and run Blue Monkey Artists’ Network since its beginnings in 2010.
