ABOUT US

Starlight Studio and Art Gallery is a cooperative environment that supports adults with disabilities in their artistic development. Through technical assistance by professional artists, on-site and off-site exhibitions and other opportunities for representation and sales, the Starlight artists hone their artistic interests, become stronger advocates and better integrated citizens.

 

Starlight Studio and Art Gallery opened as a day habilitation program by Beyond Support Network, formerly Learning Disabilities Association of Western New York, in August 2005 with funds from the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities.  Starlight is modeled after a dynamic art program in California that was observed by a staff member when he lived and worked in that area.  An art lover himself, Marc Hennig was determined to bring this effective model to the artistic people with disabilities in Western New York.

Starlight Studio is a division of Beyond Support Network
