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.
