Exhibition dates are November 6 – December 1

Pendulum Gallery, 885 W Georgia St, Vancouver
The Pendulum Gallery is wheelchair accessible.

Can You See Us Vancouver? features 9 artists who all live with disabilities, and use wheelchairs.
Featuring works by Athena Cooper, Karen Clarke, Amber Rainshadow, Ashley Fraser, Darrell Hyatt, Doug Heal, Cat L’Hirondelle, Mujtaba Satoojee, and Robert Bell.

Why do an exhibition like this?
– To highlight a small fraction of the many talented artists living with a disability,
– To break down the barriers that commonly prevents these artists from getting well-deserved exposure on gallery walls and give the general public the opportunity to see their work;
– To present works that are authentic representations of the disability experience.

“The wheelchair symbol does not tell the whole story. Not about disability, and not about using a chair.”
