Independence First October Gallery Night

Article *
IndependenceFirst has a vision for full inclusion of people with disabilities in every aspect of our community, including making, viewing, and exhibiting original artwork.

We are now accepting applications to be considered for participation in our October 2017 juried exhibition to coincide with National Disability Awareness month. Our goal is to showcase the work of professional or aspiring professional artists with disabilities or whose work contains disability-related themes.

The artwork of selected applicants will be displayed in our reception area, on up to 145 ft. of wall space, for the entire month of October, with an artists’ reception on the evening of Friday, October 20, 2017, the Historic Third Ward Association’s Gallery Night event. In addition to the Gallery Night attendance, IndependenceFirst hosts many meetings and trainings in our facility and can sometimes have as many as 1,000 visitors in a day.

DEADLINE: JUNE 2, 2017 (If materials are not received by this date, they will not be considered).
