Call to Blind and Visually Challenged Artists - F

Call to Blind and Visually Challenged Artists – Free Association Gallery

Free Association Gallery, Jacksonville, Oregon

Artist Call!!! Blind & visually challenged creatives!

1. Email 5 images (max) to [email protected]
2. Please include dimensions of the art
3. Short bio of how creating makes you feel and impacts your life.
4. Deadline June 1st
Location: Free Association, 120 N. 4th St., Jacksonville, Oregon
Opening reception: Saturday July 13th 4-10 pm
Show details: “Eye Opener” ~ Exhibition of visual art made by the blind, a contrast from the typical perspective. The art we want to showcase is of artistic vision based on emotional intuition, rather than exclusively what is seen by the naked eye.

Yes, it sounds unusual. Perhaps it seems impossible to some. However it’s not unheard of, and blind artists create some amazing works of visual art. For some fine examples, check out the art by the blind in this article at scene360.com. This article at Bored Panda further examines the work of one of the artists featured in the previous article. And shows of art by the blind are not unprecedented. Check out this article about “Insights,” the pre-eminent exhibition of paintings, photographs and mixed-media pieces by legally blind artists, in San Francisco. And this article at Wikipedia has a list of professional blind artists’s Wikipedia entries with links where you can see their work.

So, we reiterate our call to blind and visually challenged artists to submit their work for our July show at Free Association i hopes that we can help the public discover some amazing works…sight unseen!
