On Saturday, March 25th, Four AOS artists were honored during the 21st Accessible Expressions Ohio exhibition. Jesse Fields, Debbie Deitrich, Tammy Twaddle, and Hallie Cox were a part of a state wide celebration of the arts. This uplifting event is organized by VSA Ohio, the State Organization on Arts and Disability, based in Columbus. The Day of The Arts for All displayed a wide range of talents from painting, drawing, photography, and mixed media. AOS artist’s pieces were submitted, judged, selected, and displayed alongside artists with disabilities of all ages across the state.

The exhibition was on display for the full month of March, and artists were recognized by coming up on stage and receiving a certificate. Jesse, Debbie, and Hallie were able to make the trip to Columbus to receive their well deserved honor. The show provided a great opportunity for our artists to feel connected to a larger creative community and to be celebrated as the talented and inspirational artists that they are. We look forward to seeing what next year brings. Congratulations again to our artists!

Tammy Twaddle's mixed media piece was selected to be in the "Professional Artists" category. A great honor for a talented artist!
