ArtismPoster2Based on the book ARTISM by Debra Hosseini, who curated this show, the exhibit uses the unique capabilities of the The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art to feature hundreds of pieces including works by Temple Grandin and dozens of other creators with autism from around the world. The exhibit opens an incredible doorway into the imaginative worlds of people with Autism. All gallery proceeds from sale of prints of the works will go to the Reach for the Stars Learning Center for Autistic Children in Brooklyn, NY.

Curator and author Debra Hosseini will be attending the opening as will many of the featured artists including Justin Canha (currently having a solo show at the Ricco/Maresca Gallery), Esther Brokaw, Travis Aycox and Maria Iliou, who will be signing copies of the ARTI­SM book. There will also be short presentations by Ms. Hosseini, by Dr. Rosa C. Martinez, a founding member of the nonprofit arts
organization Strokes of Genius and an expert on art and autism and editor of the ARTISM book, and by the father of a featured artist. Samples of art from the exhibit can be found at artismtoday.com/art-gallery.

Debra Hosseini is a mom of three children. Her youngest child, Kevin, is featured in this exhibit. After Kevin was diagnosed with autism at age four, Debra left her full-time career as a computer analyst to become a stay-at-home mom and has dedicated her time to creating a better world for children and individuals with disabilities. Debra was a founding board member with several organizations that serve individuals with autism and developmental disabilities in Santa Barbara and Carpinteria, California. She now writes and curates art exhibits for people with autism and developmental disabilities.

The SoHo Gallery for Digital Art is owned and run by John Ordover, whose eight-year old son is on the autism spectrum. Using digital display screens instead of traditional displays allows the gallery to rotate through multiple works by multiple artists in a single night. The gallery sells high-quality art prints of the works displayed.
