Proceeds from Art From The Heart will go to support our organization, and our artists always receive 60% commission from the sale of their original art. This is our biggest fundraising event of the year, and is vital to supporting our mission as a studio and gallery for adults with autism spectrum disorders, providing all of the services and materials to the artists free of charge. Because of fundraisers like this we can provide a social network and career path that enriches our artists’ lives and betters our community.
