Mothers Who Create

Many of the members of Boston Handmade are seasoned, new, or soon-to-be moms. With that distinction comes the challenge of finding time to create and maintain a professional identity, along with parenting. Oftentimes it is a struggle.

Jocelyn Almy-Testa, director of The Little Art Gallery Under the Stairs, understands the struggle and has for the second year in a row curated an exhibit showcasing art work created by mothers who are also professional artists. Two BHers have been juried into its upcoming exhibit "Voices: Mothers Who Create II" at The Little Gallery Under the Stairs in Lynn, MA. An opening reception will be held February 6, 2010 from 2pm to 5pm, and the exhibit runs through April 10, 2010.

Barbed Wire Escape (above), by BH member Christine O'Brien, and Dissolve (left), by BH member Jessica Burko, are two of the artists featured in the exhibit.


  1. As a very new mom (our baby is 4 months old) I am extra thrilled to be included in this show! Thanks for the post Chris - see you at the opening this Saturday!

  2. Congrats! It's not easy finding time for yourself, let alone create. Sounds like a great exhibit!
