Painter with autism opens exhibitPosted: Updated:
An artist from Westchester is proving he doesn't need to be able to speak to express himself.
Benjamin Philbrick, who has autism, has opened a beautiful display of art at Ability Beyond on Bedford Road in Chappaqua.
While his condition may hinder his speech, his father says his son has many other gifts. "I hope that just because he can't speak, he can do much more than that and I think that's fair," says William Philbrick.
Philbrick’s work has also been on display at galleries in Manhattan.
