The word inhibition doesn’t apply to artists on the autistic spectrum. The artists are extremely free in their use of materials, often finding unconventional ways to handle or apply them. The autistic artist often fixates on a particular shape or repetitive pattern that will be repeated in many of their works.

An exhibit at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts, featuring the work of several artists on the autistic spectrum, opens August 11. MDCA has partnered with VSA Florida to bring the exhibit “Spectrum” to Mount Dora. The mission of VSA Florida is to provide, support and champion arts education and cultural experiences for and by people with disabilities.

Featured Exhibit Artist, Lynne Polley

Lynne Polley has called Florida her home for over thirty years. An aware winning graphic designer in the fields of advertising and publishing, Lynne’s paintings have been exhibited in numerous exhibitions across the country.

Lynne’s many years of working in the field of graphic arts and her experience as an oil painter, have both contributed to her love of design, color, and composition. Drawn to the beauty, one can only find outdoors, she continues to respond to nature and has studies with some of the nations best contemporary plein air artists.

Lynne says, “I find that I am driven to consistently explore all directions of creating art to achieve my personal best. I love to experiment and find the camaraderie that my painting community offers, to be such a wonderful support. I have been studying plein air for the past seven years and I’m drawn to light and shape of hidden out-of-the-way places.” Lynne currently has a studio located in College Park, Florida.
