The Mary Bishop Memorial Gallery at the Crawfordsville District Public Library invites the public to view a new exhibit by the artists of Abilities Services, Inc. Their work will be on display beginning Thursday view through Dec. 20 during CDPL’s normal hours of operation.

“Abilities Services is a premier community organization which provides services to clients with developmental disabilities and their families in Clinton, Montgomery, Tippecanoe and surrounding counties.” said Beth Smith, ASI’s Montgomery County coordinator. “We are proud to offer day services, residential group home and supported living services, employment services, and more to our consumers! Abilities Services, Inc. values people and their abilities. Our goal is to help individuals with developmental disabilities achieve their highest potential and enjoy life where they live, learn, work, and play.”

The artists have been using their multitude of creative talents to put together a variety of media for the upcoming exhibition. An 8-foot tall statue of Uncle Sam, a 6-foot tall Statue of Liberty, and a handmade American flag (all paper mache & outdoor proof!) would be the perfect addition to any patriotic themed outdoor décor. Their color syncing skills were used to create a 3-foot square floral photo backdrop made from over 1,000 coffee filters. These artworks would make a great addition to a wedding reception space, class reunion, or any other special event using your selected colors.

In April, the artists started creating their own ceramic pieces from donated molds including Christmas trees, nativity sets, ornaments, kitchen magnets, and flower pots that they are very excited to debut. Other items they have been diligently created include their popular holiday card packs, magnets, floral and animal themed paintings, and paper mache items.

“Our artists are very excited to be able to share their work with the community,” Smith said.
