Please join me for the Opening Reception Thursday, April 14, 2011 from 5:30 - 7 PM.

All of the artists in this exhibit are mothers and they were asked to have their child or grandchild write about what it meant to have an artist for a mother. Below is what my son Zach wrote.

An artist for a mother…

Having a mother that’s an artist is pretty fun. I mean, you get to go to a lot of cool exhibits and travel a lot of places! I also benefit from the talent that was passed to me through her. I’m a pretty good artist I have to say. How can you not like it? Some times it does get hard though, because she has to paint and draw a good amount of the day. I don’t like it only because of the things that I benefit from; I like the art that she draws. I mean having a talented mother who paints and draws beautiful things is the only thing that I really like it for. I really love her and I love what she does! It’s great to have an artist for a mother.
