Disabled art showcases work from disabled artists only?
That is correct. Disabled Art is a forum for displaying and appreciating art created by artists who are disabled in some way. Disabled Art submissions are curated from the aspect of accessibility first. We want disabled artists to experience the joy of having their art shown alongside their peers.
To be considered for an exhibition on Disabled Art, artists must submit an artist statement, bio and five (5) .jpg format images with at least 2000 pixels on the long side. The images must demonstrate a cohesive body of work – i,e, Landscapes photographs Each exhibition is limited to 20 images.
Does this count as being “shown”?
Disabled Art is a virtual gallery, and therefore counts as your work being shown. After your show, your work, artist information and bio will remain on Disabled Art in the archive/past shows section so you can always link back to it to demonstrate your participation in a gallery exhibit.
Will all exhibits be solo exhibits?
We want to show as much work as possible and some artists might not have enough work to have a solo exhibit, in this instance we will partner the artist with appropriate and similar modalities of art for a group exhibition. An example would be a few artists teaming up to show a painting or drawing show.
