MossRehab will present a free and open to the public exhibition by professional artists with disabilities. The work is all original and represents an array of mediums. Prices range from $65 to $4,500.

Pat and Dick Wexelblat of Merion Station are all smiles tonight. Both artists have their work on display at All About Art at MossRehab: The International, Juried Exhibition & Sale of Art by Professional Artists with Physical Disabilities. The show runs until June 21. It is free and open to the public everyday from 10am-8pm.Beverley Dubin of Bala Cynwyd, Jeff Jubelirer of Villanova, and Joan Hockman of Bala Cynwyd pause from taking in the art at the All About Art at MossRehab Patrons’ Preview Party to snap a quick picture.

MossRehab inaugurated an exhibition showcasing artists with disabilities in 1979. We believe that it was the first show of its kind on the East Coast. Many similar shows have been launched as a result. Works by 68 artists and fine craft artisans is showcased. There are 38 returning favorites and 30 artists who are new to the exhibition. In addition to local and other U.S. artists, there are exhibitors from Israel, South Africa, Canada and India.

Boardmember S. Ty Steinberg presents one of two honorees of the evening, Bob Krauss, Esq. of Lafayette Hill with his award for his leadership and dedication to MossRehab. Krauss served as Chairman of MossRehab and has been a huge supporter of MossRehab’s annual art show.

Kids Day on Sunday, April 27 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. features tours of the exhibition and demonstrations. Children will visit stations and participate in interactive experiences, such as painting with a brush held in the mouth or creating art using non-dominant hands.
