Profile of the Week: Make Studio

Make Studio works to create an inclusive, supportive space for adults with disabilities to explore their artistic talents and create their own work. The artists that attend Make Studio’s programming are able to experiment with diverse techniques and mediums alongside the studio’s staff. Additionally Make Studio’s artists are able to earn income through the sale of their art via Make Studio’s online shop where the artists receive 70% of the price of their sold work. Make Studio is striving for their artists to receive recognition for their art and talent by not only promoting the sale of their work but creating exhibit opportunities for their artists to share their creative works with the public. Through their exhibitions artists are able to not only display their talent but can help destigmatize how our society views individuals with disabilities.

Make Studio has a new exhibit coming up entitled Take A Look: Mine Ours Yours. The exhibit will run from September 9th-October 17th, 2013 at The Julio Fine Arts Gallery in the College Center of Loyola University, 4501 North Charles St. An Artists Talk and Reception will be held on Thursday September 12th from 5pm-7pm. For more information on the Exhibit and the featured artists, view the event flyer
