Now in its 32nd year, Creative Growth Art Center is the world's first independent visual art center for adults with developmental, physical, mental and emotional disabilities. This exhibition brings together 12 artists working across a broad spectrum of media from ceramics to painting and woodwork to drawing. Remarkably personal visions and aesthetic sensibilities are evinced in these unique bodies of work which include William Scott's visionary urban planning project for his home neighborhood of Hunter's Point; Donald Mitchell's labor-intensive and variously peopled drawings; Kerry Damianakes' particular blend of recipe-based pop seriality; Daniel Miller's obsessive numerical renditions; Charles Nagle's strikingly beautiful coil pots; and Kimberley Clark's celebrity homages, as well as the work of more emerging artists being seen outside Creative Growth for the first time.
Featured artists: Terri Bowden, Kimberley Clark, Gina Damerell, Kerry Damianakes, Louis Estape, Rosena Finster, Dan Hamilton, Daniel Miller, Donald Mitchell, Charles Nagle, Aurie Ramirez, William Scott, Dinah Shapiro, Gerone Spruill, William Tyler and Ronald Veasey.
