Artists with Disabilities Showcase ends Dec. 3


The Victoria Disability Resource Centre presents their 6th annual Art Showcase, beginning Friday Nov. 30, and wrapping on Monday Dec. 3, which was declared International Day of Persons with Disabilities in 1992.

The spectacular works of art, in all kinds of mediums, are created by talented disabled artists.

“We have [artists] with autism,” says co-coordinator of the Art Showcase Ami Gordon.  “[Artists] with pain disorders, with different mental health issues…spinal cord injuries… it’s everything! That’s what makes this show incredibly exciting and unique! It is a showcase!”

Founded in 1990, the Victoria Disability Resource Centre is a grassroots charitable organization run by and for persons with disabilities.

This year, the Artshow is happening right next door at Flux Media Gallery at 821 Fort Street.

“Our office will be open that weekend for snacks & beverages so stop in! And don’t miss the wrap-up celebration on December 3rd at 2p.m.!” says Gordon.

“We’re really happy to be able to showcase how incredibly talented our community is” Gordon adds.

“Artists with disabilities, their supporters, their families, people in the disability community. To help put a different perspective on the disability — to see the abilities!”

The Art Showcase is sponsored by the CRD Arts Development Service.

“That’s why we have free admission,” says Gordon. “This show is in celebration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities on Monday December 3rd.”

“Please come to the show! It’s so amazing, you will not be disappointed!” Gordon adds enthusiastically.
