Aspiring Artists Gallery

For the months of November & December, we are proud to welcome the iXpress Art Program is provided by Aspire of Western New York!

“The iXpress Art Program is provided by Aspire of Western New York. It is an expressive arts program that gives people with physical and developmental disabilities as well as other similar conditions, the ability to express their thoughts and ideas through many artistic outlets. The art program allows the individuals to convey their creativity with painting, drawing, clay work, collage, photography, music, poetry and film. The artists must overcome many challenges as they strive to create. To accomplish this, they may use adaptive equipment such as built-up paint brushes, special positioning, hand over hand work with their instructors and other unique ways to accomplish their goals. Their desire to express themselves is not limited by their disabilities and the work they produce is nothing short of awe inspiring!

This exhibit features works by many artists and is a part of their ongoing “Aspiring Artists” series. The exhibit on display contains acrylic, watercolor and mixed media pieces, as well as “Trashe´” Art. The artwork is available for purchase with the proceeds supporting the artists and the iXpress art program. For more information about the exhibit or to purchase, please contact Terry Lair, Art Facilitator at (716) 763-9070 or TLair@aspirewny.org”
