ART ACCESS GALLERY:
21st Annual Partners Exhibit
The Partners Artist Mentoring program matches emerging artists with disabilities one-on-one with professional artist mentors for individualized, hands-on, and innovative professional development. Apprentice artists develop and practice their artistic techniques and skills, expand their educational and professional experiences, learn about the business side of being a working artist, make vital connections to the local arts community, and explore and/or prepare for potential careers as professional artists. Upon completion of a minimum of 25-hours of mentoring, including attending partnership-development events and assessing their experiences in a journal, apprentices and their mentors celebrate their work in a side-by-side culminating exhibit in the Art Access Gallery.
