The Pilot Clubs of Metropolitan Atlanta founded Georgia Artists with Disabilities, Inc. in 1985. Disabled artists throughout Georgia have the opportunity to display and sell their original art, and are eligible to compete for awards and the opportunity to have their artwork displayed in a statewide tour and exhibit. Many mediums of artwork are included in the show, such as pottery, painting, sculpture, woodcarving, photography, weaving, and others. As GAWD begins making plans for the future, we continue to focus on our theme from our very first year - "Visions and Dreams, Tomorrow's Reality." According to the GAWD website, "our main goal over the years has been to identify those disabled citizens of Georgia who are creative, capable, and talented in the arts, so that their achievements and talents can be recognized. There are many disabled artists in Georgia who have visions and dreams, but have no way of making it a reality. We help make it a reality for them."
