Everyone sees the world differently, and it is especially true in the case of this exhibit – these artists literally have varying ranges of vision.

Some rely on technology to help communicate how they see the world, some rely on memory, and some continue to use the same medium they’ve always used, with perhaps different results.  One artist, who is not visually impaired, chose to create a painting that can be touched instead of viewed, so that people can experience what a painting “feels” like.

Whatever their medium, these artists are sharing important stories with us about how they see the world.

Participating Artists: Elaine Brinig, Anna Campbell-Bliss, Nancy Droubay, Zach England, Peter Hayes, Susan Reimers, Vojko Rizvanovik, Anne Vinsel, Darryl Wilkinson, Earl Williamson, Thomas Wolf and Ellen Young
