Storefront Babies, an installation by Sharon Bankert

In her newest installation, “Storefront Babies”, Sharon explores the marketing of child-bearing and pressures on women to have children with both humor and cynicism.

In the gallery a theatrical hillside is dotted with doll-heads that are presented as a confectioner’s oversized lollipops. The effect is world that is reminiscent of Wizard of Oz meets Grimm’s fairy tales.

Ironton is open Monday through Friday 10-4, and Saturday noon-4.
