The spirit of partnership and shared vision of Passion Works Studio represents the very best in collaborative, community arts. Since its inception in 1998, the studio has supported collaborative art-making by placing Passion Works Artists (artists with disabilities) together with Resident and Visiting professional artists to create outstanding and beautiful works of art.
Images from the fine art have been translated into a highly marketable line of jewelry, metal sculpture, “Passion Flowers,” greeting cards and sublimated tile items. Through the sale of fine art and products, the studio has generated a major portion of its operating costs and offers innovative and meaningful employment for people with disabilities and other artists in our community.
While everyone present may have different abilities, the entire process requires the diverse abilities represented by all participants, “disabled” and “abled” alike. All are equally important, all are stakeholders, and all involved learn a valuable and rare lesson – that a community is only as rich and as strong as the collaborative and collective visions and dreams of the members of that community.
The Studio Gallery Shop is located just off Court Street at 20 East State Street in Athens.
