The Nicholas Center Showcases Neurodiverse Artists At The Art Guild

Local organizations partner to showcase artistic talents of neurodiverse artists

“Expressions—Our Perspective in Art, Photography and Words” by The Nicholas Center

The Nicholas Center held a special Reception at The Art Guild on Sunday, Jan. 21. The show, entitled “Expressions—Our Perspective in Art, Photography and Words,” is the first Nicholas Center collection to be shown. The Nicholas Center has partnered with The Art Guild—meeting monthly to study and create together. Students have been introduced to a variety of artistic styles and mediums in process-oriented art, where the act of creating is as important as the final piece. An impressive array of artwork created both at The Nicholas Center and at The Art Guild will be shown through the end of January.

“The variety of artistic talent on display is quite amazing. The Nicholas Center is thrilled to partner with The Art Guild to offer autistic adults the opportunity to learn, explore and create! Thank you to teachers Tracy Lefkowitz and MaryKate Carroll for their vision,” said Lee Anne Vetrone, director of development for the The Nicholas Center.

The Nicholas Center has revolutionized the way autistic adults learn, live and work by offering vocational training, supported employment, meaningful community-based projects and vital peer connections. Visit for more information.
