“Tangled in Color,” a delightfully riveting exhibition featuring drawings, embroideries and weavings in exuberant colors by ArTech Collective artists produced in collaboration with SAORI Arts NYC, remains on view through August 28 at The Gallery at W83. The above image depicts a drawing fashioned with mixed media on paper by Elvin Flores — pictured here, along with his mother, at last week’s opening reception. Several more photos captured during the joyous opening reception follow:

ArTech Collective is a studio program funded by AHRC NYC. The program provides opportunities for artists with intellectual and developmental disabilities to develop and express themselves through inclusive, innovative, and accessible approaches to traditional and new media.
Founded in 2015, SAORI Arts NYC is a non profit organization that brings the value of weaving as a healing art form to people with disabilities or chronic illness.
