Vista Artist Featured in International Exhibit
Posted on April 19th, 2016

​Vista Life Innovations member Cara Sprouls is one of nine artists whose work is featured in the “Unspoken Words: Works by Autistic Artists” exhibit in Bethlehem, New Hampshire through May 2.
 
A collaboration between 42 Maple Contemporary Art Center and Autism Speaks, “Unspoken Words” opened April 1 and aims to celebrate the talents of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The inaugural exhibit, which coincides with National Autism Awareness Month, includes works by artists of all ages from the United States and Canada. 
 
Vista Arts Specialist Samantha Listorti, who works with Cara in Vista’s Connect Through Art program, submitted three of Cara’s original drawings for consideration after she received an email from Autism Speaks calling for art.
 
“Cara’s artwork displays a strong sense of color and design,” Samantha said. “Her artwork really speaks to me. I find it to be very charming.”
All three of Cara’s drawings were accepted into the exhibit, a fact that makes her “proud” and “happy.”
 
A Clinton resident, Cara said she has been drawing since childhood. Now, at 30, it’s one of her favorite activities. Her talent was recognized at an early age by an elementary school art teacher who informed her parents that she could be a professional colorist.
 
Cara has been a member of the Vista program for 10 years. Outside of her artwork, she stays busy as an employee of Ventures Business Services, where she works as a fulfillment crew member stocking medical drawers for local hospitals. She will celebrate her three-year employment anniversary with Ventures this month.
 
With campuses in Madison, Westbrook and Guilford, Vista Life Innovations is a nationally accredited community-based education program for individuals with disabilities. For more information, visit www.vistalifeinnovations.org.
