Veterans Art Show

Updated: Thursday, February 20 2014, 07:05 PM EST
Local veterans show off their artistic side with a show at Asheville's VA Medical Center.

Works in a number of categories from painting to sculpture, photography to pottery are part of the 9th Annual Creative Arts Show and Competition.

Participants say they can sometimes find healing through their art.

Gerry Oberton, artist/Veteran, "we all have hidden talents and if you can bring them out and express them you get to feel a little bit better about yourself, even if you're in pain, going through VA treatments, this really helps."

There are also categories for creative writing.

The winners from the Asheville competition will be entered into the National Veterans Creative Arts Festival which is in October in Milwaukee.Veterans Art Show
