Milk art gallery is a new online exhibition space that shows visual art works by artist-mothers during a key moment in their lives — maternity leave. We have just launched, and will offer more information as it becomes available. For now, check out our Open Call!

It goes without saying that “mommy art” has a lot of baggage, for reasons both good and bad. We’re not here to bask in sentimentality, nor look down our noses at it. What we do want is to engage seriously with the powerful force of a human being who creates both life and art: the artist-mother.


Milk was launched in October 2022 by Katherine Oktober Matthews, based in The Netherlands.
