An exhibit of works created by people with disabilities is moving into the Fairfield Arts Council‘s gallery on Sanford Street.
The opening reception for “Change” is 6-8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 14, and the show runs until Feb. 19.
This juried show was organized in response to 91 Connecticut artists’ desire to present their work in a gallery setting. They had replied to a call for entries issued by CCT and YAC in February 2010; 39 were accepted by jurors Stephanie Moore, then-director of Visual Arts for VSA, Washington D.C.; and Sal Scalora, former director of the Benton Museum at the UConn.
It makes sense that the exhibit will be über-accessible. Expect materials in Braille and in large typeface. Pieces will be placed at sight lines to make them accessible to everyone.
Of the 39 artists selected for the exhibition, 13 will be represented at FAC: Jaya Dadlani and Todd Hannon of Stratford; Michael Daly, Alice Dubois, Marc Laizzi and Debra Willis of Trumbull; Tom Gattey, Bob Sexton, and Danielle Shepard of Guilford; Molly Hauser of Fairfield; and Marie A. Kerr and Samantha Downing of Stamford.
The FAC show is the last in a series of three exhibits. The previous two were held at the CCT gallery in Hartford and at the Cornwall Library in Cornwall.
