Amaya Gamage

1 - 30 April

In celebration of World Autism Awareness Day on 2 April, The Riddoch is proud to present the work of local artist Amaya Gamage.

Amaya is a 13-year-old girl who loves to draw. She uses art as a hobby, for relaxation and as a means of communication.

Amaya has a unique way of drawing the characters in her mind and while she mainly draws animals, lately she has been dabbling in word art in different languages.

This exhibition will also feature work from her new book Amaya’s Animal Alphabet, which will be launched at the Mount Gambier Library on Sunday 7 April 11.30am.
