The MatriarchThe Sierra College Ridley Gallery presents Brood Patterns, an exhibition of paintings by Cynthia Horn. Brood Patterns is a series of oil paintings reflecting on the function of the matriarch in the family and society. Utilizing iconography from classical sculpture, to Barbie dolls and mannequins, Horn delves into an intimate study of the generational role of the female, and the intertwined relationship between mother and daughter.
