Redefining contemporary art.

When you own a piece of NIAD art, you connect with the unique story of an artist with disabilities, amplify an original voice in contemporary art, and empower a non-traditional artist to earn income from their work.

NIAD online exhibition

"We Make Art In Richmond" organized by Erin McCluskey Wheeler

About the Exhibition

All of the artists in the show, We Make Art in Richmond, really do exactly that. Half of the artists work out of NIAD’s 23rd Street Studio and the other half work out of their homes or studios scattered throughout Richmond, working in a range of mediums from bookmaking to textiles, ceramics, printmaking, poetry, and painting.

There are twenty artists in this show, but there could easily have been four times as many artists who are excelling at their craft, sharing their work globally, giving back to their communities, and making it happen here in Richmond.
