Four Wheel Drive and Colorful Driving, two paintings by Russell “Rusty” McBride, have been accepted into the international, juried exhibition and sale, All About Art at MossRehab in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania. The annual exhibit focuses on work by artists with disabilities and is open to a wide range of media. Rusty’s paintings are unusual. “I use my wheelchair as my pencil and paintbrush by rolling over my art pieces and adding materials in layers,” he explains in his artist statement. “It is like dancing.”

Recognized as a national leader in comprehensive medical rehabilitation programs, MossRehab offers a wide range of specialized services, including comprehensive programs for brain and spinal cord injury, stroke amputation and orthopedic conditions.
