CCAC holds reception for Comp Systems artists

The Charles City Art Center held a ice cream social reception on Friday for residents of Comprehensive Systems Inc. in Charles City, whose artwork will be the featured exhibit at the center for the month of August.

The reception included artwork, ice cream and music, as students of local music instructor Sarah Jensen played and sang at the event.

Comprehensive Systems in Charles City provides support to more than 300 individuals with special needs. Services include residential, vocational and day services in a five-county area. John Guthart has conducted an art class for the residents since 1989 and a variety of paintings and drawings from those classes will be on display this month.
