Vision Through Art

8th November – 22nd December

A collage with an eye in the centre of a background formed of leaves cut from paper in shades of green an blue. The iris of the eye is not one distinct colour but instead has shades of brown and blue.

Wirral Society of the Blind and Partially Sighted present their exhibition “Vision Through Art“.

This is a display of multimedia artwork produced by visually impaired people. Their expression through the senses demonstrates how the world is seen from the perspective of sight loss.

The artwork has been produced by members of the Society’s arts, crafts and pottery groups who have a range of eye conditions, including macular degeneration, retinitis pigmentosa, glaucoma and cataracts.

“Vision Through Art” will be on display in Gallery 6th 8th November – 23rd December. Free entry, for full visiting information check our Visit Us page.

EVENT: On Thursday 9th November 11am-12:30pm artists and WSBPS staff will be in the exhibition to showcase the work, explain the impact of sight loss on the perspective shown in the pieces, and demonstrate some of these eye conditions with simulation glasses. Free, drop-in.
