Parents can be an eternal cause for embarrassment, no matter your age: Mom’s trying to act like she’s one of your besties and you can pretty much always count on Dad to bust out his painful comedy routine that consists entirely of “pull my finger” and the ensuing braying, spittle-spraying laughter.

But sometimes, working with your parents on a project can be very cool, as is the case of a new art show, “Shared Space: A Mother, Son Collaboration,” an exploration into the creative minds of Irie Sentner, 14, and his mother, Mari Velez Sentner.

This family-oriented event will showcase the mother/son duo’s work in photography, mixed media, and collage.

The show will be held from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 5, at Sweet 11 Gallery, upstairs at 863½ Main Ave.
