Art in the Cincinnati Community

Art in the Cincinnati Community

During this past week in Professional Practices, we were asked to investigate different art communities nestled into our own budding art community of Cincinnati. Fellow artists Michelle Corbett, Claire Talbot, and myself decided to look into the gallery Art Beyond Boundaries, located on Main Street in Cincinnati and we were able to speak to the gallery director.

For those who have not yet been acquainted with the gallery’s mission, it is definitely one to hear! Art Beyond Boundaries is a gallery that is focused on giving artists with any sort of disability the opportunity to exhibit their work. Every year there are at least five exhibitions giving these artists a chance to get their work out into the world that would potentially be pushed aside simply because of their disability. The current percentage of profit split between artist and gallery is 70-30, which leaves the artist with plenty of funds to make a living and to continue making art!

The current exhibition at Art Beyond Boundaries is entitled, “A Thousand Flowers Bloom”. If you’re interested in learning more about the gallery and its mission, please visit the website: http://www.artbeyondboundaries.com
