The Colours of My World art exhibition showcases the artistic talents of local people with autism, and 90 people came together to celebrate that at the exhibition opening on Friday, August 2.

Held at Willunga Show Hall, the exhibition is a community-based project exploring the diverse talents and aspirations of the autism community.

It is a bi-annual art and literary exhibition, and is an opportunity to share, celebrate and inspire the autism community.

Included are works by both established and emerging artists from across the Fleurieu.

Artists have spent eight months exploring media and methods to produce a thought-provoking exhibition, which is open daily from 9am to 4pm until August 11.

A performing arts night will be held on Friday, August 9 at 6pm.

Much of the art is for sale, and 100 per cent of the proceeds from sales go to the artists. Some have donated their works to ongoing autism-friendly arts and craft programs, and support activities for the autism community.

The exhibition is supported by Asperlutely Autsome and Aspire to Inspire.
