Subject: [Nfb-krafters-korner] today's Agenda
Today is the day I meet with Dr. Freeman in Pittsburgh, PA to do a
discussion on sight loss and the arts. I am so excited and hope to be able
to share what we do as crafters and artists with those who attend this
meeting today. I have examples of my beadowrk and pottery that I will be
sharing with the group so they have visuals. Visuals are always a good
While I never EVER speak for any group of people, I do think that sharing my
own story and the impact of being part of a group of other artistans like we
are here is so important. Without many of YOU, I would not have even thought
I could do the many things I now do. When I go to speak today, it is with
deep gratitude to the NFB and to this group, and to JOYCE and others here.

The Impact of Low Vision
Faces Seen Hearts Unknown Series
Saturday, March 24: 1 p.m.
The focus for this program is the impact of Low Vision on individuals,
families and communities. This program is inspired by Lynda Lambert's
ability to continue with her art practice in spite of vision loss. The
format for the event will be casual and participants and visitors will sit
together and informal discussion of how Low Vision has touch their lives.
Doctor Paul Freeman, Head of the Low Vision Rehabilitation Center at
Allegheny General Hospital and co-author of The Art and Practice of Low
Vision will be joining us. The Faces Seen Hearts Unknown Series invites
community members to share their stories so we can better understand issues
presented in artwork and this series began several years ago with the Beyond
Shared Language exhibition.
