Posted on Tuesday, August 8, 2017 at 1:37 am

Mount Dora Center for the Arts, 138 E. 5th Ave. Mount Dora 32757 will hold an art exhibit entitled “Spectrum”, August 11 to September 23, 2017. Opening Reception is August 11th from 6-8pm. Admission is free for both exhibit and opening reception.
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, the sate organization on arts and disabilities, 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.
A piece titled “Autism is Eye” by Austin Lubetkin of Miami is included in the exhibit. Lubetkin says “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. 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 reception on August 11 from 6 to 8pm.
Gallery hours are M-F (10 am – 5pm), Sat. & Sun. (12pm – 4pm)
