Included in this year’s exhibit are a selection of fun and whimsical sculptures that were created by CATA artists using recycled materials. At the Lichtenstein, each sculpture was displayed alongside paintings that paired well with one another. Here, a sculpture by Kelsey Fontana is paired with surrealist portraits of peacocks by Richie Morcie and Tina Rochester, as well as a stunning abstract painting by Beth Ann Murray.
Beth created her painting using an adaptive technique called “Artistic Realization Technologies” (or A.R.T.). This method allows artists with disabilities to control the entire creative process with the aid of an assistant, using a laser pointer to show exactly how they want to move the brush on the canvas (click the video below to see A.R.T. in action).
