AHA recognizes the Good Purpose Gallery & Justin Canha

AHA – Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association sent this email blast!

Our congratulations to Justin Canha, AHA member and very talented artist for his one man show at the GOOD PURPOSE GALLERY in Lee, Mass. (January 4-February 5, 2014- Meet the Artist January 24 at 5:30pm) Anyone who has visited the AHA Offices in NYC at Spectrum Services has seen a number of Justin’s pieces in the main reception room and in the AHA offices.

Justin is an accomplished artist who happens to be autistic. His childhood passion and whimsical style for drawing and painting animals, plants and cartoon characters showcase his clever sense of humor and unusual sensitivity to nature, human and animal relationships. His work first appeared on the New York art scene in 2005, in the Autism/Aspergers/Art exhibition at Ricco/Maresca Gallery. His work has been exhibited at universities, galleries and museums.  Justin was the subject of an extensive profile in the New York Times “Autistic and Seeking a Place in an Adult World” written in September 2011 by the national correspondent for the Times, Amy Harmon, who covers the impact of science and technology on American life. She has won two Pulitzer Prizes.
