"Two Births and the Afterlife" features a new body of work by Milwaukee-based artist Aimée M. Everett, exploring the profound transformations experienced during childbirth and the subsequent journey of self-discovery into motherhood. The artist delves into the poignant realization that with every birth, there exists a simultaneous death - the departure of one's former identity to welcome a new, evolved self.

Everett vividly portrays the overwhelming joy and simultaneous dissolution of familiar aspects of identity. This body of work - employing abstraction, minimalistic line-making, saturated colors, and melodic compositions - serves as an emotional odyssey. "Two Births" invites viewers to embark on a personal journey of empowerment and liberation, ultimately found through new Motherhood.

The exhibition will remain on display through April 20.
