When they have children, artists don’t simply quit being artists.
Many balance being a mom and their art, whether it’s music, poetry, painting, writing or dancing.
Tonight, nine moms will talk about being an artist and a mother.
Art from Julian Adair, Rachel Mindrup and Kim Reid Kuhn will be on display and Mindrup will draw a live caricature of Momaha.com editor Josie Loza, who will emcee the event at the House of Loom.
After the discussion, Jamie Presnall of Tilly and the Wall, poet Sarah McKinstry-Brown, spoken word artist Michele Troxclair, fashion designer Megan Hunt, playwright Ellen Struve, actress Sonia Keffer and dancer/choreographer Julian Adair will do short performances.
The event is being put on by Momaha.com and Les Femmes Folles. Admission is free, but donations of women’s toiletries and baby items are requested to benefit Lydia House, a shelter for women and children.
After the event, an all-female DJ lineup will perform.
