A Platform

A Voice  

Recognition

Another dimension of my work involves working with differently abled artists. It is my hope that by working on collaborations, I will be able to provide a platform to showcase their expressions,  create a channel so that their voices can be heard and that their works gain the recognition they deserve. Simply put, the ultimate goal is some form of self sufficiency. 

One of my most ambitious work to date was the book project I embarked on with Ms Jacqueline Woo and Dr Tan Lai Yong.  I contributed 10 paintings .  The book "Let Us Consider" is a compilation of 31 inspirational essays. Book launch scheduled on Nov 7, Enabling Village. 

Jac  is 26 and she has Dystonia, a neurological disorder. She graduated from NUS 2 years ago with a Bachelor of Arts, Distinction in History. She writes well and each piece is heartfelt.

Christian Tan was diagnosed with autism  disorder spectrum at 4 years old and only started speaking at 8. Christian is 24 this year and  has an elephant memory, in particular he can remember dates and events very well. He loves music and he loves art. He draws well and has a penchant for stick figures. He was the other artist that I collaborated with last September in the sell out  LANTERNS TO MY HEART Exhibition at CHC.  Christian takes art lessons from VSA but this year, Christian  also went under the tutelage of  Artist, Ms Yoke Ying and together, they have produced some lovely pieces on a co-sharing basis.

Ben suffers from Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (TSC) and is also on the autism spectrum. He is low functioning and is not very verbal.

Ben is 34  and he attends the St Andrews Adult Autism Centre. He loves music , loves to swim and loves to paint. Ben has an excellent eye for colours and though limited in his hand eye co-ordination ability, he is able to dab in  what I called "Only Ben" style. Ben's work has been featured in books, one of which is "ART WITHOUT BOUNDARIES, Living on the spectrum". This year, Ben was also the poster boy on World Autism Day in a special video commissioned by Temasek Foundation Care. Ben has his own series of "BenBags" which is a very successful line of his works on tote bags. 

Last September, I  collaborated with Ben in a sell out exhibition at Chinatown Heritage Centre. Ben and I have co-shared some works on canvas.

Douglas Leong  is mentored by Artist JTmuses.  Douglas' work improved by leaps and bounds under JTmuses' watchful eye. Both mentor and mentee joined forces  and have since produced some excellent art pieces on iconic places of Singapore.

Douglas was diagnosed at 3 years with Pervasive Development Disorder Spectrum. Douglas is high functioning. He went from Northlight  School to ITE and then to the Polytechnic. He is 24, holds a day job  and loves to paint. His works have been exhibited and some of his paintings have been reproduced on lacquer boxes and there was even a limited edition handbag.

works by special artists

guided by their mentors

Significant in this journey with the boys is a mentoring program we started where not only skills are imparted, we also ventured into canvas sharing with our mentees. These pieces are the results of many hours of hard work and months of working alongside each other. Limited prints are available. Works are being produced on merchandise and will hit the market soon.

Customised merchandise is possible and the boys are ready to accept commissioned orders. 

We welcome all enquiries, please message me at glacy@glacysohart.com

Today is the day of the Book Launch. Finally, it is here! Excited.  Come what may, we are so glad that the book has come to fruition.

Many thanks to our Community Partner, Enabling Village and to MediaCorp Enable Fund for their support. 

Nov 9,  2019. Ben and I received our first co-share commissioned order. We are sooo happy. 

 Nov 23 tomorrow. It is the Launch of SG Enable's initiative 'I'M ABLE'. It is a drive about affirmation and inclusion. SG E is sparing no efforts in this launch. The GOH is a VVVIP! They even roped in MediaCorp artists and many like minded vendors for a special 'I'M ABLE' GIFT MARKET!
We consider ourselves blessed to be part of this. 

Nov 23, 2019. At Enabling Village, SGEnable launched " I'mAble" Initiative. We are so blessed to be involved in this. So simply over the moon when Madam President Halimah, came by our stall, looked and talked to us. This photo is precious. Thank you so much to Madam President, she certainly made our day !  #TGBAG
