Central Virginia artists with disabilities are sharing their talents with the community. Volunteers are setting up the Very Special Arts (VSA) art show inside Charlottesville High School's Martin Luther King, Jr. Performing Arts Center.

The show displays paintings, drawings, and sculptures from more than 100 people. Many of the pieces are for sale with all proceeds going directly to the artist.

"They are overjoyed with the opportunity to display their art, and I think the ongoing process of producing the art is also just fun for them," said Sarah Blech, therapeautic recreation manager for the city of Charlottesville. "They're really proud to have it hanging and to have people come to see it and comment on it and appreciate it for what it is."

The exhibit opens with a reception Friday from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. After Friday, the exhibit will be on display to see by appointment only through March 3.
