People Incorporated’s annual Artability Art Show celebrates art as a powerful force for self-expression, healing, and community mental health. The show, now in its 26th year, features a variety of artwork and writing pieces created by local artists 18 years of age or older who experience barriers to mental wellness.
2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition
We’ve contemplated new ways to share artist stories and artwork and we’ve made the decision to move the 2021 Artability Show to a virtual format to protect the health and safety of our communities.
The 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition hopes to reflect on the events of the last year and how art, thoughtful conversations and coming together as a community can help us continue to heal, learn and grow.
Our Artability Show Virtual Edition will premiere on November 5, 2021, on our Facebook and YouTube channels and our website.
Submit Your Entries Online September 1 – October 1, 2021
We’re excited to feature your visual artwork, writing pieces, and celebrate your story – we’re just doing it in a different way this year.
Our entry form is online-only this year. While you won’t be entering your artwork for sale, we ask that you submit photos of your art for a virtual showcase on our website, social media, and during the show.
You will also have a chance to upload your writing, which will be featured in a virtual e-book.
Any adult 18 years of age or older who experiences barriers to mental wellness can participate in our 2021 Artability Show Virtual Edition.
