The exhibition, which opens today in the Otago Museum’s H D Skinner Annex,  will feature works by artists from Dunedin and further afield.

Ms Cooper said many people with autism expressed themselves through art and the exhibition provided a platform for them to  display their work.

Organiser Tanea Paterson said the exhibition "showcases the amazing depth of artistic talent in both the local and wider autistic community".
