Art Unblocked 2021
March 3 to May 14, 2021
Arts Access, in partnership with the City of Raleigh's Block Gallery, is excited to host an exhibition titled Art Unblocked 2021, featuring works of art created by emerging and established artists with disabilities.
Out of Darkness
September 30, 2020 to February 19, 2021
Featuring seven artists juried by George Jenne, Out of Darkness pays homage to Film Noir. This genre first evolved out of economic necessity following World War II as low to modestly budgeted film projects. The result of working with minimal equipment and resources led to creative experimentation then and now.
