Artists from the Anderson Center for Autism will display their work at Unison’s gallery at Water Street Market

This Saturday, Feb. 25 from 5 to 7 p.m., Unison Arts Center will be holding a reception for “Outcomes of Expression” at its gallery space at Water Street Market in New Paltz. “Outcomes of Expression” features four artists who participate in the Adult Services Program at the Anderson Center for Autism. With the guidance of art therapists Lucy Barbera and Gloria Mirsky, the students got to create prints and photographs. Featured artists Chrissy Cihi, Simone Mondesir, Paul Gutierrez and Robert Guarino have been going to Unison weekly for the past month to work on their pieces. The prints and photographs express the students’ individual pursuit of subject matter and use of color.

“They only had a month, which isn’t a lot of time, but they created some really great stuff,” said Carol Robins, the executive director of Unison.


There are about 20 pieces that will be on display with work from each artist in both mediums. The artwork will be for sale and all of the proceeds go directly to the artists. All four artists will be there, along with staff from both Unison and Anderson, and their two instructors.

The exhibit will be on display at the Unison space at Water Street Market through March 20. Admission is free.
