The National Autistic Society organised a national art competition with over 70 pieces of work exhibited in the Cob gallery in London. The entries were whittled down to two runners up and one winner by a panel of judges, including award-winning autistic artist and poet, Jon Adams – and our very own Ruth Mutch is one of the runners up!
Many members of the public came to see the exhibition, find out about the autistic artists, and learn more about autism. Darrell Hawkins, who runs NAS Artrack and helped to organise the exhibition, said: “Every day I see the positive impact that art can have on autistic people’s lives. It’s wonderful to see their confidence developing and the sense of achievement that creating a piece of work you’re proud of can have on someone.”
Well done Ruth!
