October 2 - 23, 2010

As part of the Creative Spirit Arts Festival, member artists both with and without disabilities each worked to produce a set of three canvasses. Each artist’s canvasses are displayed together to form a screen.

Curated by Ellen Anderson, this exhibition explores the idea that artists with disabilities are forced to go through various screening processes. Not only are they measured according to their artistic capabilities and talents but they are also forced to undergo medical scrutiny and social examination.

Challenged to work in this large format, all seventeen artists rose to the challenge and the resulting exhibition is a impressive testament to the power and possibilities of creative self-expression. Closing party Saturday October 23, 2 - 5 p.m.
