RHD-RI is proud to participate in the 13th Annual Paul V. Sherlock Memorial Art Show. Twenty RHD artists are showing their work, along with other RI artists.
'This exhibit honors Paul Sherlock, whose career as a teacher, legislator, State Director of Special Education, and advocate for people with disabilities transformed Rhode Island into a place where exhibits such as this - and the unseen work that takes place to assist the artist's creative process - are possible.
'The over 100 works on display demonstrate a breadth of style and images - art that is as varied in method and expression as the life experiences of the individual artists; artworks demonstrating that it is not preconceived notions of what "disability" is that defines us, but our passion for creating art. The talents on exhibit are a fitting tribute to celebrate Paul Sherlock's lifelong dedication towards improving the lives of people with disabilities, and serve as a reminder to the rest of us to render life in bolder strokes.'
