ART ACCESS GALLERY: 300 Plates 2018

300 Plates is the annual Art Access fundraiser and exhibition. This signature event, first hosted in May 2003, presents unique artwork that is both affordable and highly collectible, created by approximately 160 established and emerging artists from the local community. Using 11 x 10-inch plates (tempered panel or plexiglass), each artist prepares small works in their recognizable style. Finished plates include everything from landscape to assemblage to pop art to photography and more. During the fundraiser and month-long exhibition the plates are hung in the Art Access Gallery, creating a kaleidoscope of one-of-a-kind artwork.

 ACCESS II GALLERY: 50 Squared: Teen art exhibit

 50 Squared is a group show created by young emerging artists from local High Schools.  Like 300 plates, each young artist is given a square of the same material.  The artists then create unique works that share varied points of view.  Join us as we celebrate the next generation of artists in our community!
