Accessible Arts and Sydney Opera House presents: AART.BOXX 2007

'In celebration of International Day of People with a Disability, AART.BOXX is guaranteed to inspire.' (Sancha Donald, CEO, Accessible Arts)

Now in its second year, AART.BOXX is an exhibition that highlights the creative talents of young Australian artists under the age of 25 who have a disability. The exhibition and artist talks will be held at The Utzon Room, Sydney Opera House and officially opened by Anne Loxley, Managing Curator, Penrith Regional Gallery & Lewers Bequest.

Initiated by Accessible Arts, this exhibition features works by emerging artists from across the nation and includes mediums such as painting, photography, sculpture, animation and digital media. The common thread that links these artists together, comes from their innate need to communicate through art.

'The outcomes are extraordinary and express the depth of art generated when creativity, youth and disability meet.' (Sancha Donald, CEO, Accessible Arts)

The subjects explored in this exhibition are unique and distinct. See Jarrod Wendt's ceramic platters that juxtapose domestic ware with images of military fighter jets in mid-conflict. Or digital self-portraits by Bianca Wright that express her journey with mental illness. Other artists featured in this exhibition are:

FIONA BELL, JONATHAN BRENT, BILLY COLYER, JACQUI CRANE, ALEXANDRA CROMBIE-VAN EWYK, DYLON DAVIS, MAHE FILMOEHALA, DAMIEN FLANAGAN, JULIAN FLECKNER, DAVID GILLHAM, BRADLEY HALABE, NICHOLAS HEW, BEX HIRDMAN, PETER HUGHES, CHRIS LOXLEY, MANCI MEHTA, AARON MURRELLS, GANSTER MOVIE, ANDREA MYERS, CARLY POOL, ERAY SARACOGLY, TIM SHARP, JOEL SMITH, JESSICA TATTERSALL, JAMES TAYLOR, MATT VINEY, KELLY WALKER, DIGBY WEBSTER, RACHEL WRIGHT
