Chuck Baird Gallery
We exist to preserve the legacy of the artwork and the memory of Chuck Baird. We are the only licensed avenue to obtain prints and other artwork of Chuck Baird. We start with a selection of stretched canvas and matted paper prints as well as jewelry for the community to enjoy. (The matted prints and jewelry are usually only available in person at expo and other events, but until December 15, we will make a limited number available for purchase.)

Deaf Artist Series
Deaf artists Ann Silver and Nancy Rourke each have their own books in the series with Chuck Baird and The De’VIA Founders coming soon. As well as a new series coming in 2019 on Deaf Performers starting with Peter Cook. These books bring attention to the artwork and lives of contemporary Deaf visual artists who are important to the Deaf Art Movement and De’VIA (DeafView/Image Art). These are Deaf artists who place a perspective on their artwork which relates to American Sign Language, Deaf heritage, and Deaf culture. Each book contains Silver and Rourke’s lifelong works, art interpretation, some art description, Deaf culture notes, and personal anecdotes on each artist’s Deaf experience. The new series brings attention to Deaf performers who have enriched our lives.
This important series offers readers an insight into the world of culturally Deaf people through their own artists. Furthermore, the series serves as a useful guide for art historians, curators, and docents in recognizing the contribution to American art and culture. As the Deaf Art Movement and De’VIA are becoming an increasingly popular aspect of Deaf culture, interpreters will find themselves interpreting about these two artists in a variety of settings. In fact, Ann Silver’s and Nancy Rourke’s artwork has been printed on academic tests around the country, which is why having a base knowledge of these artists is becoming essential.
