GO ART! will feature the artwork of Alfie Batt at its 10th Annual Community Arts Awards Gala on Oct. 2.
Batt’s original artwork on the event theme “A Prelude to a Winter Solstice” will be seen on all the gala materials and also on display there.
He has an eye for artwork and enjoys showing his creative side, especially making mosaics. He entered his mosaics on display by participating in the GO ART! exhibit at The Shirt Factory in Medina.
Alfie attends The Arc of Orleans County’s Day Habilitation Program during the day and enjoys sharing his artwork with all visitors. Alfie is well known for his love of animals and volunteering for the Orleans County 4-H Fair. He also enjoys taking scenic photographs of the landmarks in Orleans County and sharing its history with residents and visitors.
Recently, GO ART! introduced Alfie to art classes at Shawn’s Gate Studio in Medina and his discovery of acrylics opened a whole new world to him. Batt is quite proud of his accomplishments and has enjoyed sharing the opportunity with his peers.
