Art show features abilities and talents

The art show Tuesday evening included local entertainment of singers and dancers.

The Kirksville Regional Office of the Missouri Department of Mental Health held the 12th annual "Celebrating the Artist in You" Reception and Art Show at A.T. Still University Tuesday evening.

Organizers say the best part of event is seeing the talent the participants have to show.

â??Look at the abilities. They achieve so much not only in artwork, just in their communities such as employment. This is just a small part of what a person with a disability can do,â?? said event chair Chuck Comstock.

The art show also included local entertainment of singers and dancers.

KTVOâ??s own Marlene Speas was emcee of the event.

About 200 people came out and some even bought the art work to keep.
