Art Ability 2011 5th – 12th December, The Atrium -Federation Square

Lots of Fun, Janet Yong

In 2011, ADEC will again be proudly presenting ArtAbility® to the public, with support from the City of Melbourne, Federation Square, The Office of Multicultural Affairs and Citizenship (OMAC), Motion Printing, Jen Clarke Design, Hope For The Future, the Disability Services Commissioner and MediQuest.  The exhibition will run from 5th to 12th December, and will be located at The Atrium, Federation Square, as it has been in years past.
This exhibition unites a range of talented artists of all ages from a variety of cultures.  This year’s theme is Freedom, and we are eagerly anticipating interpretations of this theme, presented in a variety of mediums including paintings (oil, acrylic, ink), sketches, sculptures, tapestries, photographs and even poetry.  ArtAbility® is now in its 7th year.  It provides a high profile platform for artists to express themselves in a way that transcends language, race, age, physical and mental health challenges.  
Many up and coming artists have gone on to host their own exhibitions after taking part in ArtAbility®, and artworks have been purchased by many high profile customers and are on display in public and corporate venues around Melbourne.
If you would like to be involved in ArtAbility®, either as an artist, or as a sponsor, please contact Cassandra Glover, Artistic and General Coordinator, on 9480 1666 or via email on artability@adec.org.au
