Vicky Westra / Artistas Founder
ARTISTS with AUTISM
Artistas Gallery provides a venue for talented artists with autism to exhibit and sell their artwork through a multitude of different avenues including gallery exhibits, on our website, through events and displayed on a variety of retail items.
Our mission for Artistas World is
“Developing People with Autism’s “Uniqability”
so they can work, live and play in our inclusive communities."
The Artistas Gallery program allows us to educate the public about the diagnosis of autism and provide our talented artists income from the proceeds for any of their work sold.
Our artists are handselected by a panel of seasoned professionals.
Some of the criteria include color, composition and style.
Pieces are selected for their marketability and appeal.
Art that inspires, soothes, calms and moves the viewer offers the utmost of human interaction and connects us through emotion.
This allows the artists to communicate with the audience in a profound and meaningful way.
A Win...Win... solution for artist and the community.
Gaining attention to artwork that might not have a chance to be seen
Providing the public an opportunity to gain a new appreciation for art
Creating an understanding of autism
Enhancing the ambiance of any office, building and home.
Is Your Venue Right for an Artistas Gallery?
BUILDING MANGERS of
Public Buildings/Office Buildings/Libraries/Government Agencies/Restaurants/Corporations/Art Galleries
You can have a gallery that will enhance the atmosphere of your building in a way you never thought possible.
Not only will you bring color, light and energy into spaces that are lackluster, but you will also support a social cause that touches so many lives in our community.
You will love the way we dress your walls and we do it in a way that inspires and touches people.
There will never be artwork that is objectionable or controversial. Rest assured that we have your best interests at heart.
Best of all...we do the work!
“Only through art
can we emerge from ourselves and know what another person sees. “
It's time to showcase and
for those with autism
having artistic 'Uniqabilities'.
