Centered | Our Journeys
October 30 – December 20, 2015
Reception: Friday, October 30, 5-9PM

Each May since 2007, the Center for Disability Services has sponsored an art exhibit highlighting the creativity and talents of consumers of varying ages and abilities from preschool through senior citizen.  Staff members began to exhibit their work starting in 2008, and were incorporated with consumers for an inclusive show beginning in 2010.

The artworks included in this exhibit are selected from a larger show complete with an awards reception that will be held in May 2015 at the Center’s headquarters on S. Manning Boulevard in Albany.  The pieces are selected by The Arts Center’s Director of Exhibits, Sara Boylen, and Directors of Education, Sunny da Silva and Joseph Mastroianni.

The 2015 exhibit highlights personal stories and dreams, the ease in creating beautiful images and the contentment that results from art making. Themes of nature emerge along with abstract color and shapes in a variety of mediums including paint, photography, and clay.
