I never gave too much thought to the idea of having kids. I felt I had enough going-on in my life to take care of another human being. That changed when I met the wonderful human I am with now. We both went through some experiences that made us realize we wanted to be parents. Then the struggle began. Pregnancies that went nowhere, endless nights thinking what I am doing wrong, endless days trying to figure out what we can do differently.
This exhibition is about the journey of bringing a human being to life. This looks different for every person on earth, but I know there are many people out there that have gone through what we went through, and even more. Trying to stay positive is hard sometimes, but art helps me process what goes on in my life and around me, it helps me overcome obstacles and keep looking forward to good things that will come. Enjoy the ride.
On view at Montefiore ARTView Galleries at Moses Campus until March 2023.

Stay safe everyone and remember to keep in touch during this hard times.
Join Laura Álvarez as she exhibits her latest artwork on paper. Large unique prints and mixed media pieces, results of the evolution of her previous series Woman Being.
"We are human bodies made of cells regulated by hormones and chemical balances. Once one of those small things goes wrong, the balance falls apart and it's really hard to pick it up. I have ART to help me through".

Art helps me to overcome the different events that happen in my life. I believe if I could not make art I would have not make it through.
Join me to talk about our struggles and create art with them. Let’s make out something new from the past, from our grief, from our sorrows. Leave all that in the paper, in the canvas, in the words we write. I will have guest speakers and light refreshments.
