April ushers in celebrations of Autism Acceptance Month at Make Studio, where 75% of our artists identify as autistic persons and/ or people with autism. To mark this important month, we’re launching a new online exhibition for the month featuring a duo of pieces by participating artists (one piece created pre-COVID 19 and one made during the pandemic). We will also be sharing videos and other features from the artists throughout the month.
Join us at Gallery 1448 in the garden at the reception for "A Celebration of Spring". Participating artists are Claudia Bismark, Lauren Case, Greg Fletcher, Jennifer Hogan, and Leslie Schwing. The show runs from May 8 - June 13. Gallery hours are by appointment.
During the reception, a plaque will be installed commemorating William Leizman's kinetic sculpture located in the garden. Leizman (1926 - 2011) was an outsider artist and found object sculptor.
