20/20 Vision: Through an Artist's Eye by Wabash Valley Artists Society
Wabash Valley Artists Society (WVAS) is a local organization of professional and amateur artists working in a variety of 2D mediums with a mission to promote and provide education and exhibition opportunities for our members.
Our 2020 exhibition showcases the diversity of artistic thought and style among the artists in our community in this lead year of a new decade, which has proven to be challenging.
The wide variety of media and subject matter in our annual show always provides fascinating and stimulating contrasts.

8 Ways of Me by Taylor Cappelleri
Through meditation and studying the body’s chakra system, Reiki practitioner Taylor Cappelleri has tapped into a new version of creativity following a 18 year hiatus from art-making. The resulting paper collages using color and her knowledge of the chakra system have become several series that reflect the artists’ journey of self-discovery.

With a desire to connect with people, Cappelleri started teaching classes with the hope of offering both art-making and healing to those who are open and willing to journey with her.

Deconstruction and Reconstruction by FibR
FibR's exhibit focuses on fiber involving deconstruction and reconstruction, using a combination of old and new. They often start with deconstruction, taking something apart and then reconstructing or remaking something again. As FibR members, they use materials ranging from fabric pieces to strands of yarn to beads to branches and twigs to fleece.
