Arts Access Gallery

A group of about 50 people talking and mingling in front of the art in the middle of the gallery. Gallery is a small space with white walls and abstract art on the wall.

The new Arts Access Gallery in downtown Raleigh is dedicated to showcasing and selling the work of artists with disabilities — the only one in the region. The small, intimate space is the perfect venue to immerse yourself in a rotating slate of different artists throughout the year. Visitors will also get a chance to participate in free artist talks and related events.

The Arts Access gallery also has a permanent collection with pieces from artists such as acrylic painters Angela Dawson, Rachard McIntyre and Wiley Johnson.
