Art / Exhibitions - Free Event
An art exhibition demonstrating the realities of living with visual impairment while heightening public awareness of sight loss.
The collection counters public preconceptions that visual disability precludes the creation of beautiful and creative art and showcases the talent of the artists in a remarkable way.
Works will include paintings, photography, prints, icons and braille art by artists (many with visual impairments themselves) who were involved in the 'Windows Of the Soul' exhibition at The Bloomsbury Festival in October 2021, and will also also support the 'Windows Of The Soul' workshops on 19 June at Tara Theatre.
The concept was pioneered by Dr Caroline Kilduff and Mr Siegfried Wagner, doctors who both became fascinated by the visual experience described by patients with sight loss. Over time, they began to imagine these experiences represented through artwork. They teamed up with artist Lindsey Whitelaw and curator Jane Clipston and have created an exceptional collection.
Supported by Wandsworth Arts Fringe through the Wandsworth Grant Fund.
