Artists of Autism Exhibition, Wakefield – The Artists of Autism Exhibition has been organized by Karen McGuire, also known as Yorkshire Pudding of So Shoot Me Photography and resident photographer of the charity, Anna Kennedy Online. The exhibition is currently at Fell House in Wakefield and showcases art from individuals on the autistic spectrum from all around the world. Karen has Asperger’s Syndrome. Autism Daily Newscast last reported on the exhibition in June and you can read it here.
The Exhibition has now been extended due to its overwhelming success until July 30 and will feature as part of Wakefield’s Artwalk taking place on July 30.
The Artwalk website states:
‘Take a walk on the wild side and experience Wakefield’s alternative night out! Every other month, venues across Wakefield come alive with a variety of visual arts and crafts, live music, and performances. All are welcome, so slip on some comfy shoes and come and enjoy the art on offer whilst you explore our city!’
Karen told us that being part of the Artwalk will enable hundreds of people to view all of the art work on offer, with most visitors having no prior knowledge about Autism.
Due to this increase in popularity Karen has now also introduced a Thursday Events Evening which takes place every Thursday at 7pm. There will be:
‘Mini talks (from different people each week), slideshows, animation, refreshments & chance to view the exhibition!’
‘A chance to have your work up on a board in The Artists of Autism Exhibition – UK and have it printed onto a cake to be auctioned for Autism Charity Anna Kennedy Online’
The deadline is Tuesday July 15.
