Harwood Art Center is pleased to announce our annual Bridge: Art & Social Justice exhibition featuring Plates Against Patriarchy (Helen Atkins, Jordyn Bernicke, and Monique Rivera), a female organized collective and pottery project that celebrates the resilience of women and gives voice to their stories. The exhibition showcases handmade porcelain portrait plates, narratives, and a collaborative installation. Their mission is to honor the lives of women, evoke empathy, and smash the patriarchy one plate at a time.

The Plates Against Patriarchy exhibition showcases portrait plates, narratives, and a collaborative installation honoring unsung women leaders. The Main Gallery showcases stories of over 30 women, alongside the portraits they inspired. In September 2018, the collective began collecting these stories, narratives, and photos of women across the nation via social media. Through a collaborative process, they created handmade porcelain plates honoring each woman and their experience.

The Front Gallery features women nominated by the community as matriarchs, whose work and lives exemplify the power of female leadership. In March 2019, the collective hosted a community glazing workshop at Harwood Art Center’s annual Encompass event. They invited community members to collaborate with them on the installation. Participants of all ages glazed images and messages inspired by the matriarchs of their lives.
