SOMERVILLE, NJ - Gallery on Main is commemorating National Autism Awareness Month with an exhibition of artwork by James Hogarth, an artist with autism.
Hogarth is the featured guest at a meet-and-greet and sale of his artwork at Gallery on Main, 30 West Main St., from noon-3 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.
Original pieces as well as note cards and prints of Hogarth’s artwork will be available for purchase. The 28-year-old artist will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sale of his work to benefit his school, Princeton Child Development Institute, a private, non-profit program that offers a broad spectrum of science-based services to children, youths, and adults with autism.
Hogarth has been creating bright and cheerful pictures since the age of four, using pens and markers as his medium. His work has been featured on note cards and holiday card collections to benefit Princeton Child Development Institute, which he and his twin brother both attend.
He has also illustrated numerous Toys 'R Us cards and tote bags, and donated artwork to Autism New Jersey. To see more of his work, visit www.JamesHogarth.com.
