Amilea Redmon has been an artist her entire life.

And now, people are taking notice.

The Mocksville resident was chosen as a local artist to display her hand-drawn art for display and sale at the “grand reopening” of the Gateway Galler of The Enrichment Center in Winston-Salem.

The event is from 5-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15 and will also include live performances, music and refreshments at 1006 S. Marshall St., Winston-Salem.

Amilea is 18 and has dealt with autism since she was a young child.

“She is  continuing to use her passion of art to encourage and motivate others,” said her mother, Stephanie Grant Redmon, who along with her father, Michael Redmon, are thankful family and friends who support her.

“We are truly blessed with the village they have around her,” Stephanie said. “Our motto is you may have autism but it doesn’t have you.  Keep trying and trust God first.”

The grand reopening is free and open to the public.
