Moments Of Memories

Abington Art Center is thrilled to present the work of artist Aimee Gilmore, in Moments Of Memories, on view from November 4th through December 19th, with her artist talk to take place on November 19th 2022.

Aimee Gilmore reflects on her innate desire to hold onto objects associated with her own journey through motherhood. As she preserves these objects such as baby bottles, onesies, and pregnancy tests by encasing them in rubber, resin, and chrome, Gilmore is able to draw out their inherent sentimentality while casting a critical lens on labor.

In looking at these objects and the stories that they tell about invisible labor and the care economy, her work acts as an intimate introspection; “mundane moments of daily routines, baby clothes that have long been outgrown, and abandoned stuffed animals become stand-ins for the accumulation of time and labor spent over years of caretaking.” 

Aimee Gilmore’s solo show will run concurrent with our 2022 Faculty Show, also on view from November 4th through December 19th. This year’s Faculty Show considers growth, a familiar concept for our teaching artists, and the ideas, associations, and questions that surround this word. The selected pieces interpret growth in an array of forms, from sculptural work and jewelry, to photographs, drawings, and paintings.

Please join us for our opening reception on November 4th from 6pm to 8pm, and for our artist talk, scheduled for November 19th from 10am to 12pm. We hope to see you there!

Featured Works

…Mundane objects transform into relics through small yet significant manipulations that change how we preserve our most precious yet fleeting moments and memories. By focusing on the labor of motherhood, as emphasized through the collection of recognizable objects and imagery, I begin to viscerally relate the abstract nature of care to the unpredictable nature of time and place…
