Arts Access North Carolina launches their new gallery with an exhibition of "woven Strangers" by artist Jean Gray Mohs.

Contemporary artist Jean Gray Mohs, who focuses primarily on painting and sculpture, will be the first artist to display her work – a collection of dimensional acrylic paintings on wood – at the Arts Access Gallery. The “Woven Strangers” collection will be on display from March 1 through May 18 at 444 S. Blount Street, Suite 115B in Raleigh.

Mohs, a North Carolina native who had a double lung transplant, often contrasts materials like maple plywood and waxed thread in her pieces which reflect the interplay of strength and fragility in the face of her chronic illness.

“I’m honored to showcase 'Woven Strangers' at Arts Access, a beacon at the crossroads of arts, education, and disability. My pieces celebrate the beauty, delicate balance, and incredible resilience embodied in the journey of living with chronic illness and past disability.”

Over her career, Mohs has presented her work in more than 20 solo shows, participated in 91 group exhibitions, and contributed to 24 museum and university exhibitions. Her art has graced prestigious venues, including the Contemporary Art Museum, Artspace, and Peel Gallery.

The gallery marks a new chapter for Arts Access North Carolina, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year.. The new space shifts Arts Access from an organization that most people know as a partner that helps other arts organizations improve accessibility through audio descriptions, on-site assessments, and training to one that is also promoting inclusivity through this new immersive gallery experience.

The gallery will host four shows throughout 2024. In addition to the spring gallery opening exhibition, there will be a show in summer, fall and winter. For more information about the gallery visit
