    <span style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12px;">Artist Talk and Reception: Thursday, October 27, 5:00 P.M.<br /> Exhibit on view: October 27&ndash;December 21<br /> <div>&nbsp;</div> The cross-stitched works in the series In Control reject the stereotypical domestic functionality of samplers. Historically, embroidery prepared women for marriage. Samplers represented domestic skill levels and specific cultural and religious values to potential husbands who sought a woman with the right skills to establish a household: make clothes, darn socks. Cross-stitch was used to advertise and represent womanhood, wifedom, and motherhood&mdash;but bodily functions, autonomy and diverse lifestyles were not part of this textile practice. The &ldquo;domestic craft&rdquo; of In Control attempts to directly challenge this by attempting to stitch all products related to women&rsquo;s health and needs with a fully comprehensive, bipartisan, and medically honest approach.<br /> <br /> <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/963170">Click here to RSVP</a></span>

    Inner Chamber: Mandala Collage Workshop Full Details [X]
    5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
    Babson Campus - Glavin Family Chapel
    <span style="font-size: 12px; font-family: Arial;">Visiting Artist Kate Gilbert will lead students through a guided meditation into our own inner room where we can confront our worries and fears, and then let them go. Following the meditation we&rsquo;ll create a mandala of peace using violent and disturbing images collected from print media. The mandala structure takes its design from the silhouettes of both a revolver and the Gardner Museum&rsquo;s Wheel Window.<br /> <br /> <a href="https://web.ovationtix.com/trs/pr/963173">Click here to RSVP</a></span>
