A Gralee graduate's artistic flair will be put up for display at a pop-up art gallery for artists with intellectual disabilities.
Layla Bacayo's artwork will be held up for admiration at Yield, a gallery which will feature 21 artists from around Australia and the UK.
It'll be the first gallery of its kind in the Western Riverina and shine a spotlight on some of the region's most underappreciated talent.
It's a massive joint venture by several art groups including Western Riverina Arts, Cad Factory, Griffith Regional Art Gallery, and The Art Factory.
At the gallery Ms Bacayo will be exhibiting some of the drawings she's done over the period of eight weeks at a "pop-up supported studio" at Lake Wyangan's lake house studio.
It's a quiet studio in a picturesque setting, and that's where she's been honing her craft and meeting other artists with intellectual disabilities.
Ms Bacayo has been drawing pictures of cars and complex machinery; she's got a fascination for technology and has developed a keen eye for the intricate inner workings of gadgets and gizmos.
She's affectionately known as "The Fast Car Girl", a title she got when she first broke into the art world during her first exhibition in 2017.
Yield curator Sarah McEwan said she wanted more people to see and appreciate the great work being done by artists like Ms Bacayo.
"There are so many amazing artists working in this space," she said.
"We want to see more people with disabilities engaging, and hopefully the gallery will kickstart this kind of activity."
