The Greenville Camellia Senior Center at 111 Bolling St. wants to invite local citizens of all ages to come and see an exhibition of artwork created by Alabama artists with disabilities.

The center has joined with VSA Arts (formerly Very Special Arts) of Alabama in presenting these works of art to the Camellia City.

VSA Arts of Alabama is a not-for-profit organization providing arts programs and creative experiences for disabled children and adults throughout the state of Alabama.

"Creativity: A Natural Bridge" is the name for the collection of remarkable pieces of art now on display at the Camellia Center through the 24th of May.

Exhibit hours are 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.

On Monday, May 13, a special reception will be held from 12 noon to 4:30 p.m., honoring the featured artists. At noon a short informative lecture will be held on the subject of "Disability Awareness." "Everyone is invited and encouraged to join us," says Camellia Center spokesman Mary Braden, adding, "We are one of only six cities chosen to host this exhibit in the entire state-so we are very fortunate to have such an opportunity."
