From My Perspective:

An Exhibition for All Artists Featuring Artists with Disabilities

Hosted by: Trousdale School
3171 Hewitt St SE
Cleveland, TN 37323


"From My Perspective" was created in 2016 to provide artists with disabilities in East Tennessee and North Georgia an opportunity to showcase their work alongside the work of their peers. The first year was a success with over 200 people in attendance and the participation of 58 artists from 13 organizations across Cleveland, Chattanooga, and North Georgia.

Our second annual juried art show was held held at Trousdale School on Thursday, March 16, 2017. This year’s show was a success with 75 participating artists from 14 different schools and organizations across East Tennessee and North Georgia. Additionally, we welcomed over 300 people through our doors to see the show over the course of the week leading up to the silent auction!

Stay tuned for updates on the third annual art show 2018!

The event is open to any individual who is age 14 or older. It is not limited to artists with disabilities. Participants will be recognized with a certificate at the evening session. A jury will select four artworks of outstanding creativity, expression, or design to receive Silver Easel Awards. The show is free to enter and attend, and 100% of the purchase price of any artworks sold will go to the artists (or organization) that submitted the work.

Please contact Sarah Bradley for more information or to submit a registration form (423-479-7130) or sbradley@trousdaleschool.org.
