Disabled artists show off work

November 15, 2004

Moultrie - Those with disabilities sometimes turn to art for comfort.

Artwork on display at the Colquitt County Arts Center was done by Georgia artists with disabilities.

Artists have disabilities ranging from Parkinson's disease to schizophrenia.

Fitzgerald artist Ronald Goodman, a quadriplegic from a fishing accident, painted this fish in acrylic. Executive Director, Becca Turner, says, "He paints a lot of water life or aqua life like fish, and he's very talented and we're very glad he entered the show and is on the touring exhibit."

The exhibit will be in Colquitt County until December 11th.

But, if you go this Wednesday through Saturday, you can also see the Festival of Trees.

Nearly 30 decorated Christmas trees will be up for auction and you can shop for fine arts and crafts.
