APRIL 6 - Studio 120 Reception – Clover, S.C. 6pm-8pm Friday April 6

Artwork of children who attend Chrysalis Autism Center, Inc. will be on exhibit for the entire month of April in support of International Autism Awareness Month.  A reception for family, friends and the public will be held April 6 to spotlight the artwork of children with autism that was created during therapy at the center.  The idea was the inspiration of local artist, Jackie Schohn Clarkin, who helped the children during the creation of their works. The gallery is located at 120 Bethel Street in Clover, S.C 29710. 

All of April- Lake Wylie Library

Artwork of children who attend Chrysalis Autism Center will be on exhibit at the Lake Wylie Library for the entire month of April in support of International Autism Awareness Month.  This spotlights the artwork of children with autism that were created during their therapy at the center.  The artwork was the inspiration of local artist, Jackie Clarkin, who helped the children during the creation of their works. The inspiration of the library exhibit was that of Jackie’s sister, Geri Schohn.  The pieces on exhibit at the library were created using a different medium than those that are on display at Gallery 120.  The library is located at 185 Blucher Circle, Lake Wylie, S.C 29710.
