“The creative process has taught me how to be open. I don’t have many walls up. In turn, it’s made my relationship with my son a strong one. He knows he can be as open with me as he chooses.”
Audrey Pongracz, surrealist pop painter of Detroit, mom of one, age 14. Show has seven of her pieces centered on challenges/triumphs with chronic insomnia.

“I have a strong interest – even a need – to use my work to express my inner dialogue. The impact on my children has been undeniable. All four of them have decided to pursue their educations and careers in the arts.”
Corey Scillian, clay artist of Grosse Pointe Park, mom of four, ages 25, 23 and 18 (twins). Show has seven of her anthropomorphic animal sculptures.
