For All — Selection from the Arts for All Archive
Part of the MOCA Tucson Spring Exhibition
February 13 – May 29, 2016, North Galleries, 265 S. Church Ave., Tucson, Arizona
MOCA Tucson release: For All brings together drawings, ceramics, and collaborative paintings made during the last five years, chosen from the collection of Arts for All, a local non-profit founded in 1979 that provides quality art focus for adults with disabilities.
Arts for All provides both valuable therapeutic support and vocational training, and the artwork that results renders moot questions of outsider vs. insider or naïve vs. professional. The exhibition emphasizes resourceful and powerful drawing styles and exceptionally expressive and beautiful ceramics, in which boisterous figuration and rough materiality mix with refined aptitude.
For All showcases paintings, drawings, ceramics and collaborative murals by Jason Baker, Bryan Briggs, Michelle Buscemi, Antonio Childress, Julio Cocio, Steven Fimbres, Megan Froehling, Brooke Foster, Vanessa Graves, Jon Green, Kevin Charles Judith, Brenda Lewis, Stephanie Lopez, Alex Marquez, Olga Michaels, Brian Mondeau, Janet Morgan, Christian Pereida, Brent Quihuis, Anne Reber, Steven Scott, Stacy Stokes, Thomas Stone, Nick Waldron and Colin Whetsel created over the last five years.
