Inhibition and convention doesn’t apply to artists on the autistic spectrum.
“Spectrum,” an exhibit at Mount Dora Center for the Arts, opens August 11 and features the work of several artists on the autistic spectrum.
The exhibit is a partnership between MDCA and Very Special Arts Florida (VSA Florida), the state organization on arts and disabilities.
One piece on display will be “Autism is Eye” by Austin Lubetkin of Miami.
“I tried to create a piece that epitomized my journey with autism. I thought the best way to do that was to become one with the symbolism of autism, the puzzle piece," said Lubetkin. Through this fusion, I created a work art representative of my growth and evolution as an artist on the autism spectrum.”
“Spectrum” opens with a public reception on August 11 from 6 to 8pm. Gallery hours are M-F (10 am - 5pm), Sat. & Sun. (12pm – 4pm)
