ARC Art Exhibition
Over 20 Talented Artists
EXHIBITION: February 3rd - March 28th
Reception: Friday, Feb 14th | 11am-12pm
In celebration of March being National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month, Allegany Arc’s Arc Artists have compiled an art exhibit to demonstrate an abundance of artistic style and images. Arc Art is a celebration of self-expression by artists with differing abilities. It is an Allegany Arc sponsored outlet for artists with special needs to not only express themselves through art, but to raise community awareness of the diversity and value of artistic expression.
“We are honored to have partnered with the Wellsville Creative Arts Center for 13 years to promote disability awareness, and to encourage individuals with disabilities to explore new activities and discover their inner artist,” says Carrie Redman, Allegany Arc’s Director of Administrative Services. “Arc Art honors individuals with disabilities throughout Allegany County and celebrates their accomplishments by spotlighting the talents of artists with a wide range of physical, cognitive and mental health disabilities.”
Over 20 artists are displaying their work in the Arc Art exhibit; varied in method and expression as the life experiences of the individual artists
