Featured artists include Katie Berman, Abie Harris, Wiley Johnson, Peter Marin, and Jean Gray Mohs.

Raleigh-based artist with Autism, Wiley Johnson is known for his gestural abstract paintings inspired by experiences in his everyday life. His works juxtapoz striking colors and are marked by emotions of raw gestural strokes.
