Annapolis, MD (July 29, 2022) - Yesterday evening, County Executive Steuart Pittman opened the 2022 Artists Without Limits Art Exhibit. The exhibit will run from August 1st through August 19th at the Arundel Center in Annapolis, Maryland, and from August 22nd through September 9th at the Chesapeake Arts Center located in Brooklyn Park, Maryland. The show features artwork from Anne Arundel County residents of all ages with disabilities. Twenty-five artists have contributed thirty-nine pieces of art to display this year. The opening night reception was held on Thursday, July 28, 2022, at 5:00 p.m. in the Blue Heron Center at Quiet Waters Park. The event included the presentation of citations to all of the artists from the Maryland Delegates, County Executive Steuart Pittman, and the County Council.
This year marks the eighth annual Artists Without Limits Art Exhibit. The event was postponed during 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “I love this art, and I so admire the artists who create it,” said County Executive Steuart Pittman. “Artists Without Limits is a magical collaboration between our Commission on Disability Issues and our Arts Council that we look forward to every year.”
The exhibit is presented by the Anne Arundel County Department of Aging and Disabilities, the Anne Arundel County Commission on Disability Issues (CODI), and the Arts Council of Anne Arundel County. April Nyman, Executive Director of The Arts Council, stated, "This is the eighth year we've had the opportunity to partner with the Commission on Disability Issues on this exciting art exhibit. As jurors for the exhibit, we were so impressed with the quality of the artwork submitted. It's great that we can give this kind of exposure to artists with disabilities."
Katie Collins-Irhke, Chair of CODI stated, "This art exhibit gives individuals with disabilities a way to showcase their work in a highly visible, respected way. It actually helps to change perceptions about people who have disabilities."
