Savant Art Center

Owned by two autistic artists, the Michael Tolleson Savant Art Center (205 First Avenue South) opened earlier this year in downtown Kent. This lovely gallery features the work of Michael Tolleson and Jack Carl Anderson. In addition to the gallery and adjacent studios, the artists host mentoring classes for autistic students. Located inside Titusville Station, the gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 am to 8 pm, and Saturdays from 9 am to 3 pm.

The gallery’s founder Tolleson is a savant, which he attributes to Asperger’s and which gives him the ability to paint proficiently and beautifully without formal training. Since he began painting in 2011, Tolleson has painted more than 350 impressionistic pieces – each painted in under an hour –featured in galleries throughout the Western U.S.

For more information about Tolleson and the Tolleson Savant Art Center, including videos showing him at work, visit the gallery online.
