Autistic Services, Inc. Returns to ArtSpace for 2010

(BUFFALO, NEW YORK) The return of Autistic Services to ArtSpace means more than 30 artists from their Arts Program will be highlighted.  This successful program allows the participants of Autistic Services Inc. to communicate through many different art media thus showing their understanding of composition, color theory and the use of space. “Many people with Autism are challenged by living in our mainstream society. But that doesn’t mean they cannot find other ways of communicating with the public. Art is a sophisticated way of doing that,” says Veronica Federiconi, Executive Director of Autistic Services Inc.

ArtSpace will once again welcome the show which will be exhibited from August 6 to August 28.  The exhibit opens with a reception on Friday, August 6, 2010 from 6PM until 9PM. ArtSpace located at 1219 Main Street Buffalo, NY.
