‘Three In One’
Open Night – 1st June 5:30-9pm
Running- 31st May- 1st June
In 2017 Open Arts is celebrating 25 years of engaging disabled people in the arts. As part of our celebrations, we will exhibit ‘Three In One’ in The Green Room at The Black Box throughout the month of June.
We run 3 visual art groups for disabled people each week:
1 Monday Morton group work on crafts, textiles, individual pieces and group projects.
2 Acorn Arts, based in Divis Community Centre, for blind or visually impaired people.
3 Open Art, based in the Crescent Arts Centre. They each have their own specific interest and talents in particular media. They are facilitated to each work independently.
The groups have exhibited In Linen Hall Library, Ulster Hall, The Barge and Crescent Arts Centre over the past few years.
Our exhibitions are always varied and interesting as we have such a range of people involved in the producing the artwork.
The artwork will include individuals’ work from across our 3 visual arts groups encompassing an eclectic selection of various subjects such as landscape and still life using a wide range of media and techniques including: embroidery, fabric manipulation, watercolour, pastel, mixed media collage, action painting and stencilling.
Each of the groups has been working on the pieces that will be exhibited over the past 6 months. The exhibition will reflect the range of interests, materials & techniques across Open Art’s visual art groups and, indeed the scope and variety of all of Open Arts’ programme for disabled people.
