Opening / First Friday – August 5, 2022 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM

Third Friday Portrait Slam – August 19, 2022 – 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM

Portraiture has a long and varied history. Before the invention of photography, portraits were the only way to visually record the appearance of someone. Paintings, sculptures, and drawings were used to do more than just record. These portraits were also used to represent the often exaggerated power, importance, beauty, wealth, and other qualities of the subject. 

While organizing August’s show Depicted, Access artists questioned the purpose of portraits. How have portraits influenced our understanding of society and culture? How important is representation in the arts? Who should be recorded? 

The artwork in this show was created by both Access and community artists. As an organization dedicated to increasing access to the arts for people with disabilities, we recognize the importance of being seen.

Portrait Slam

Third Friday Portrait Slam – August 19, 2022 – 5:00 PM – 8:00 PM 

On August 19 from 6-8pm Access Gallery artists will be creating caricature drawings for all of our visitors. Last spring a group of artists took a workshop to learn the art of caricature drawing with local artist Mel Saavedra where they learned to break down the face by shape, exaggerate the facial features, and incorporate color. We hope to see you there! 

$5 suggested donation per caricature.
