For Artists With Disability, a Time to Shine
KETTERING, Ohio — Jordan Smith beams when he begins to talk about photography.
"It calms me," he says when asked about his passion. "I can go outside and be with nature, and that also calms me."
Smith, 18, is one of 35 artists whose work is represented in the "Art & Soul Exhibit" that kicks off with an opening reception at the Town & Country Fine Art Center Friday, April 9.
All 40 pieces of artwork on display are done by artists with developmental disabilities, including autism and Down syndrome.
