Here's a chance to engage in the work virtually. I've enjoyed being featured in artist talks and roundtables. I am grateful for the walkthroughs that share the gallery experience with those who cannot attend in person.

This group exhibition brings together fifteen local, national, and international contemporary artists, working in a range of visual media, each of whom produce works around their narrative and experiences based on the systemic structures and representations surrounding the labels of disability. Their visual interpretations are a powerful reminder that accommodation, understanding, and appreciation is important for social justice, but there is also a unique wisdom from those with disabilities that should be heard, empowered, and lifted up." Many thanks to Larissa Nickel at AVC Gallery, LA Art Documents, Heidi Marie Photography, Anthony Tusler, Teri Grossman for audio descriptions, McKerrin Kelly for voice over, Amber Jobin for Melusine's custom perfume, and all the artists of Opulent Mobility past, present, and future.
