SHIFT: An International Juried Exhibition by Artists with Disabilities
June 3-30, 2011 in the Terrace Gallery
Every life contains moments of change. The visual arts exhibit Shift
seeks to investigate those moments that alter the direction of a person's path and create a new reality.
A quest to capture images, when faced with losing sight. A career change, after a diagnosis. Redefining a worldview, from escaping pain to seeking happiness.
VSA invited artists living with disabilities to share moments when a shift in their landscape occurred. From the personal to the professional, their stories are told through a range of media in this international juried exhibition.
