The Art Program at Gatepath-Abilities United is designed to provide artists of all abilities and backgrounds access to the Bay Area art community by selling and exhibiting their work in public spaces, corporations, and art institutions. Abilities United has had exhibitions in the Children’s Discovery Museum, The Palo Alto Art Center, The Walt Disney Family Museum, Lexus, and at Linked In. Through these art exhibitions and sales, people in the community have gained a better appreciation for the achievements and talents of individuals with disabilities. On July 1, 2019, Abilities United became affiliated with Gatepath, ensuring individuals with developmental disabilities and their families in San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties continue to receive important services and achieve their full potential.
Since 2000, more than five hundred works of art have been sold through the Art Program to people from all walks of life, including art collectors and corporate executives. With sale prices ranging from $30 to $1500, the Art Program supplements the artists’ incomes by giving them eighty percent of the profits made from art sales. The talented artists who exhibit with us work across an array of styles and media, from ceramic to aluminum foil, oil paint to watercolors.
