Blind Artist John Bramblitt -- The Art of Living Gallery
Eyes on the Arts
It's an opportunity for those with vision loss to experience art.
The Canadian National Institute for the Blind is hosting an exhibit at
the Tom Thomson Art Gallery today.
Event Coordinator Donald Anderson says Eyes on the Arts features pieces
of tactile art made by local artists.
He says the works are all touchable so that those who are blind or
experience vision loss can experience the art through feel.
