The Art House Gallery presents "Comfort Zones" an ACCESS JC Fridays Exhibit

Art by Amy Burns

(JERSEY CITY, NJ) -- Art House Productions presents "Comfort Zones" - a group exhibition of work from artists with disabilities. The work will be exhibited in the Art House Gallery from June 2-25, 2023. Regular gallery hours are Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. All artwork will be for sale in the Art House Gallery at The Hendrix at 345 Marin Boulevard, Jersey City, NJ 07302, as well as on the Art House Online Gallery on the website.

Each June, Art House Productions presents ACCESS JC Fridays, focusing on inclusion and accessibility in the arts. “Comfort Zones,” explores the liminal space between comfort and motivation. Oftentimes, the behavioral patterns in one's artistic practice can cause an individual to feel secure in their work which can lower anxiety and stress, due to utilizing familiar techniques and materials that require minimal effort or risk. Stepping outside this comfort can create a welcome balance between the need for security and the desire for personal and artistic growth. It’s an opportunity for self expression beyond the usual and having their voices heard, promoting self-advocacy and empowerment. This exploration allows the artist’s work to evolve and grow alongside the artist’s work.

Curator, Andrea McKenna says: “The work of each artist in this exhibit is within their comfort but it is also their evolution into newer and broader artistic territories.” Participating artists are: Amy Burns, Angela Denise, Jim Fallon, Jon Gabry, Anna Kasperowitz and John Piccoli.

Large print for all literature regarding our exhibitions and tactile and descriptive tours are available upon request. Email Andrea McKenna for more information at: gallery@arthouseproductions.org.

There will be an Opening Reception as part of ACCESS JC Fridays on June 2 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
