International Photojournalist Scott MacQuarrie 5/3/13 @ Avery Gallery
Avery Gallery welcomes international photo-journalist Scott MacQuarrie from Canada for the May 3 Artwalk. He has been a member of the Canadian Association of Journalists for nearly 10 years. He is a member of PPA, ASMP, PPOC, APA-EP, EP-Canada, and EP-UK. He was recently invited to join the X-Rite Coloratti community, a select group of currently 80 photographers considered to be experts in color.
In addition to being a world-renowned photographer, Scott is also Autistic. After being diagnosed at the age of 46, he realized that he had taught himself many of the same coping skills educators now teach children. Scott decided that the real value of his experiences would be for younger autistics to understand that autism comes with some benefits and that they can do whatever they want to do in life. Since that time Scott has given talks to many groups in Canada concerning autism.
A taste of GG's Creole Cuisine will be served and refreshments will be available. Parking is free in our parking lot next to our building.
Scott will also be available on Saturday, May 4, for talks concerning autism and the arts throughout the day at Avery Gallery. Please contact us for more information.
