PATC 2022: Call for Artists

On behalf of the Office of Developmental Programs, we are pleased to invite artists on the autism spectrum to exhibit their artwork virtually during the 15th Annual Pennsylvania Autism Training Conference (#PATCImplement2022).

In previous years, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to offer exhibiting artists a table in the exhibitor area to display and sell their artwork. Since #PATCImplement2022 is online, we would like to offer artists on the autism spectrum an opportunity to showcase their arts and crafts (for example, paintings and drawings, photography, jewelry, greeting cards, pottery, fabric crafts, etc.) on a virtual “art gallery” which will be linked to the conference materials on MyODP.

The art show will consist of images of artwork supplied by the artists, as well as links to their website or email address for further information for attendees who are interested in purchasing works that are for sale.

If you’re interested in exhibiting your work, please complete this brief application: https://drexel.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6RJCHKeFtg5g2mW 


Eligibility: The PATC Call for Art is open to Pennsylvania residents who are on the autism spectrum.
Deadline: Friday, September 30th
Content Guidelines: Submissions must adhere to the following guidelines to be considered for the art show:

  • Content should not include the use of profanity or vulgarity.
  • Content should not include blood, violence, firearms, or injury.
  • Content should not include sexualized imagery.
  • Content should not promote hatred against, discrimination, disparage, or humiliate an individual or group of people.
  • Content should not include imagery relating to recreational drugs or other drug-related content.
  • Content should not include political themes.
  • The review committee reserves the right to determine that artwork is not eligible to be part of the show if we find it exhibits any of these criteria or may be offensive to anyone viewing the work.
