ZOOM Be It Exhibit
Access Gallery's mission is to open doors to creative, educational and economic opportunities for people with disabilities to access, experience and benefit from the arts.
As the pandemic hit in March of 2020, Access was forced to seek other ways to engage their participants and like many, turned to online teaching via the ZOOM video meeting platform. Through the coordination of Associate Director, Cris Ciani, Niza and other local working artists —Jordan Bobrick, Kelly Craighead, Jake Fairly, Javier Flores, Niza Knoll and Amy Siegel—were able to instruct and interact with Access Gallery artists throughout the year, mostly on ZOOM. The work generated during this time by the Access artists, (whose work is credited by first name only) will be on exhibit from January 8- January 30th in “ZOOM Be It” at Niza Knoll Gallery. Additional pieces by the instructors will also be shown.
Access Gallery is in the midst of renovations to their space, so it was an obvious fit to hold the exhibit next door at Niza Knoll Gallery. Examples of work will be showcased from the various classes that included an introduction to master artists, portrait painting, abstract, cartooning, Frida Kahlo, free drawing, painting, and computer art.
The current gallery hours are Friday and Saturday, 1-5 PM. Visitors are encouraged to check the website for updates as they may change. Masks and social distancing are required. Access Gallery will open again in early February with a newly remodeled gallery & studio space.
