Operating in Danville since 1998, the Down Syndrome Connection aims to empower and support people with Down syndrome, their families and the community around them while also fostering awareness and acceptance for all.

"Recycle-Abilities" will open with a reception set for 6-8 p.m. Thursday at the gallery at 233 Front St. in downtown Danville. The free event will include complimentary refreshments.

The gallery is open to visitors from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Fridays, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays, and Mondays and Tuesdays by appointment, as well as one hour before performances in the theater. The gallery is closed on Sundays.
