Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Artists with a Vision 2011

Artists with a Vision event held September 2011 at the Samuel Lynne Galleries in Dallas, TX featuring the work of three artists who are blind: John Bramblitt, mixed medium artist from Texas; Pete Eckert, photographer from California; and Michael Naranjo, Viet Nam veteran and sculptor from New Mexico. This event illustrates that with the proper tools and skills, people with vision loss can achieve their dreams.
