New York City
Pure Vision Arts is an exhibition space and art studio that serves artists with Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy. This month, the gallery at Ace Hotel New York hosts Public Access: Selections from Pure Vision Arts, a group exhibition of works culled from PVA painters, sculptors and craftspeople.
Every artist in the show is an autodidact, honing their craft with inner compass alone, and the show is a testament to its value. Playfulness, still life, obsession and longing — these works unfold like colored scrawls from a secret notebook.
