Exhibit: Spectrum Perceptions
Exhibit runs through Oct. 29, 2012
Sept 21 – Oct. 29: The Good Purpose Gallery presents “Spectrum Perspectives”, an inside look at art through the eyes of an individual diagnosed on the autism spectrum.
Varied in medium and expression, Michael brings attention to unusual detail in pen and ink realism and watercolor landscapes; his acrylic paintings and glass shard sculpture are joyful abstractions. Michael McManmon’s artistic perspective is naturally different as he is diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, a form of mild autism. He was a featured artist in the book “Artism” and in 2011 opened a visual and performing art center, the Good Purpose Gallery and Spectrum Playhouse, aimed at developing the talents of students with Asperger’s Syndrome.
The Good Purpose Gallery thanks Michael McManmon for not only showing his work in our amazing gallery space, but for donating 100% all proceeds of all sales to the College Internship Program, a post-secondary program preparing young adults with Autism, Asperger’s and other Learning Differences for independence.The Good Purpose Gallery is located at 40 Main Street, Lee, MA. Join us for the opening reception of “Spectrum Perspectives” on September 21 at 6 pm. Visit www.goodpurpose.org for more information.
