A very special showcase of visual arts will be on display when Capital Arts presents its Fall Exhibition and VSA Exhibit in Jefferson City.
The showcase essentially is three exhibitions - one featuring area artists, another based on photography and art from "Inside the Walls" of Missouri State Penitentiary (MSP) and a traveling exhibit from VSA. All will be on display from Sunday through Nov. 1 at Capital Arts Gallery, 1203 Missouri Blvd.
The international VSA (Very Special Arts) organization promotes access to the arts for youth and adults with disabilities. Inside the Walls is a collection of artwork and photos, inspired by MSP.
The work will be on display during Capital Arts Galley hours, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, and from 1-4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. An artist reception will be held from 4:30-8:30 p.m. on Sept. 28 in conjunction with the seventh annual Art Exposed Gallery Crawl.
