JSDD’s WAE Center studio artists have been members of Studio Montclair for many years. The Portrait Project was conceived as an educational and artistic opportunity where both JSDD’s WAE Center and Studio Montclair’s Art Academy brought their facilitators and students to a shared table…and created this reflective work.
This work is on exhibit from August 1 – August 31, at the gallery of Studio Montclair at 127 Bloomfield Avenue, Montclair, NJ. Opening reception to be held “In Real Life” on Saturday August 7 from 1-5pm.
On June 22, the LGBTQ+ WAE group gathered with artists, families, allies and friends to convene our first Artists Talk and Opening Reception for the “Art of Inclusion – LGBTQ+ Pride 2021” virtual exhibit.
Hosted by Oscar Marin, four artists spoke about their work and motivation and shared their thoughts about advocacy through art for LGBTQ+ people, including those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD).
The 11th annual Rutgers NJMS Collaborative ARTS Exhibit, featuring work by artists from JSDD’s WAE Center and Matheny Arts Access. Both programs are dedicated to supporting individuals with disabilities in creating fine art. The artistic process is an undeniable source of empowerment for people with disabilities, and the work on the exhibition is a testament to the success of each program.
