The idiom “in good hands” is defined as to be in the care of a person or people who are able to take care of someone or something well. Oftentimes, women and femme identifying individuals are defaulted to be the caretaker. Women and queer artists are also celebrated one month out of the year from exhibitions, to talks, and highlights. To care is a spectrum, as is making; therefore if you are in the care of a maker, you are in good hands. Care is centered around the intention and attention to the work and by the hand that offers it.
