Sometimes artist mothers are torn between parenting and artmaking; other times they thrive in the grey zone. They sketch during violin practice, at the swimming pool and in the waiting room at dance class. They invite the kids into the studio, draw with them at the kitchen table, let them into the art supplies and follow their lead. This exhibition features works made with children as inspiration, distraction, collaborators and opponents in epic art battles. If you think this is a show only a mother could love, you don’t know these children.
