Since VSA Texas no longer has our own gallery space, we are partnering with businesses in the Austin community who are providing us with the wall space and we are providing them with beautiful art displays. We are currently accepting entries by Texas artists with disabilities for two community spaces. Please ask for an entry form by contacting April Sullivan or calling 512-454-9912.
The Alzheimer's Association - North Central Texas Chapter seeks artists in their service area who can conceptualize the workings of the brain when big pieces are missing--finding, and zeroing in on, what remains that is active and vital. The works of art by people with dementia (pwd) from Memories in the Making offer clues to what this state of mind, and its expression in art, might be.
To be considered for inclusion view full exhibition proposal and paintings by people with dementia by visit the Alzheimer's Association North Central Texas Chapter website and click on the links under Exhibitions to be taken to the paintings and stories.
