A Group Exhibition Featuring
Artists Working at Visionaries + Voices
Curated by Skip Cullen

November 4—December 9, 2022

Pearlman Gallery

Opening Reception: Friday, November 4, 2022, 5—8pm

The Art Academy of Cincinnati is pleased to present Driven, a group exhibition that showcases artists working at the Visionaries + Voices studios in Cincinnati who possess an internal drive and impulse to create artwork with a heavy reliance on repetition, process, and intuition. At times, the process of following one’s intuition is more important than the eventual context of the artwork being placed into established avenues of the artworld. Repeating ideas and processes can also be a meditative act. When repetition is viewed in its entirety, it can communicate something larger about the everyday, and our shared human experience. 


Artists included in the exhibition: Kenny Barger, Antonia Baxter, Rob Bolubasz, Danielle Boyd, Curtis Davis, Aaron Evans, and Adam Maloney.


About Visionaries + Voices: Established in 2003, Visionaries + Voices is a non-profit organization that provides exhibition opportunities, studio space, supplies, and support to more than 125 visual artists with disabilities. V+V artists actively contribute to the greater arts community through creative, educational, and strategic partnerships with local and regional artists, schools, and business leaders. Collectively, we are growing a more inclusive arts community in Greater Cincinnati.


About the curator: Geoffrey “Skip” Cullen is a conceptual artist working in Cincinnati, Ohio. Skip is a member of the artist collective Slapface and a co-founder of Adobe Books and Arts Cooperative in San Francisco. He is a co-founder of WavePool, a Cincinnati-based non-profit, creating community fulfillment through artistic possibilities.
