(Malvern, PA) Planning is underway for the 14th annual Art Ability Exhibit and Sale at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital in Malvern. Members of the Art Ability planning committee met recently to finalize plans for the upcoming exhibit and sale, slated to kick off on November 7.
Art Ability includes a juried art exhibit and sale that celebrates the strength, determination and creativity of artists with physical and cognitive disabilities, as well as hearing and visual impairments. The Art Ability Committee includes volunteers from Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital and the community who oversee the planning and organization of the annual event. This year the committee was instrumental in developing an online call for entry program designed to make it easier for artists to submit their work. Each year, more than 400 pieces of art work are included in the exhibit from all media – painting, photography, sculpture, fiber arts, stained glass, jewelry and fine crafts. Volunteers are welcome to join the Art Ability Committee at any time. For more information on volunteering, contact the Art Ability office at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital.
