Artist Challenges Public Perception

With dyslexia remaining an often confusing and complex subject, one young Portland artist has taken on the challenge of spreading awareness and comprehension with a new exhibition that opened on Saturday.Portland Secondary College student Morgan Ross, 18, recently completed ‘Dyslexia’, a six-piece exhibition tackling the reading disorder, with the event launching on Saturday at the Percy Imagination and Learning Centre and remaining on display indefinitely over the coming weeks.

Dyslexia is characterised most commonly by difficulty reading and interpreting text, with its appearance often coinciding with both genetic and environmental factors. After being diagnosed with dyslexia in grade two, Morgan said the discovery had a persistently profound impact on her life.“I first got the idea for the exhibition as a part of a school project,” Morgan said.“We had to work on something that was about raising awareness for something within the community, and I thought dyslexia was a great choice because it’s something a lot of people don’t understand and it’s something very close and personal to me.
