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. This exhibition features works made with children as inspiration, distraction, collaborators and opponents in epic art battles. 

Opening Reception: May 5, 7 - 10 pm
Cre8ery gallery & studio, 125 Adelaide Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3A 0W4 

The Golden Hour – An Art Exhibition by Sari Habiluk
May 6 to May 16: Tuesday to Friday, 12-6 pm; Saturday, 12-5 pm

The Golden Hour refers to the time period shortly before sunset or after sunrise during which daylight is redder and softer than when the sun is higher in the sky. 
The time holds a personal significance to me. The Golden Hour is when I find myself painting past midnight. At that time I am most inspired and productive.
