On a chilly weekend in March, Charles, an avid TAPA art student, had his art work featured in DownrightArt’s annual exhibition. The show was at Macari Vineyard in Mattituck, and at Long Island Aquarium. The organization celebrates World Down Syndrome Day and the spectacular individuals with Down Syndrome. The following excerpt is from the 2015 program. Congratulations to Charles for another amazing art show!
