Yep, time to treat yourself to the next NIAD shirts in the “We Are Lions” line! Three new rags are available with images from Billy White, Sylvia Fragoso and Dorrie Reid.
Black and white is the new black. Well, maybe not, but they certainly look great together. With “Ebony + Ivory” we’ve rounded up a group of work that is just that. Okay, maybe a few pieces have another color tossed in, but you know what we’re talking about.
Curious about how the studio works? Well, for Win Win, our annual fundraiser, we made a 90 minute silent documentary that captures a day of life at the Art Center.
We are a contemporary art studio where adults with disabilities make some amazing art. Our artists exhibit their art regularly. We sell it and our artists receive half the money NIAD receives. We love what we do. Want to learn more?
Everyday, nearly a dozen adult artists with disabilities living in the Hercules area make the trek to NIAD Art Center in Richmond… heading over the hill, and get busy in the studio. At the invitation of the Hercules Public Library, NIAD is pleased to announce our participation in a two part, back-to-back exhibition.
NIAD’s visual art program promotes meaningful independent living by artists with disabilities—while its artists create remarkable contemporary art. In a unique open studio environment, and with the guidance of qualified staff, NIAD artists acquire new skills in artistic practice and in independent living.
While not all of NIAD’s artists receive wide-spread recognition for their art, all gain a sense of pride from learning a craft and profession of their own. Artists at NIAD earn 50% commission from the sale of their work and a nearly all have sold at least one piece of art by participating in the program.
NIAD Art Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit and is supported in part by local and national foundations, businesses and individual donors (like you.) We could use your support in whatever way you can afford. NIAD’s art program promotes extraordinary art and meaningful living by artists with disabilities.
