Located on 111 South West Street, Studio West will serve as a publicly accessible gallery, showcasing the artwork of persons with disabilities and allies to these individuals and communities. The rotating show schedule is expected to include pieces created by individuals with disabilities, students, as well as works by instructors and supporters. A variety of artwork will be available for purchase, ranging from large pieces to small seasonal and gift items, providing income directly to the artists. In addition, Studio West staff hopes to include publicly interactive pieces with many of the shows.
The gallery space will also feature a dynamic art workshop, offering classes that are accessible to community members with all levels of ability.
