Lynda’s Art Story:
When I lost most of my sight suddenly in 2007, I thought I would never be able to make art again. I was wrong about that! With rehabilitation training and encouragement of friends and family, I discovered that the artist in me was still there and still able to make art again. I started to make pottery and attended classes at Sweetwater Center for the Arts (Sewickley, PA.)
Soon, I was making POTTERY and in just FOUR YEARS I was able to have a one-person exhibition of my pottery and fiber art at the Merrick Art Gallery (New Brighton, PA) in 2011.
The attendance for my opening reception was remarkable and my work sold very quickly that night.
In 2014, I had another exhibition of my pottery and fiber art and once again, the work sold to a large attendance of viewers that night.
I also began entering my fiber art in the InSights exhibitions in Louisville, KY in 2014.
My mixed-media fiber art and bead-working creations have been juried into 8 of the InSights exhibitions at this time.
My entry this year will be my 9th submission to the InSights23 jurors. I have been able to attend two of the exhibition opening receptions and awards banquet and it was wonderful to meet the other artists and see the artworks they create.
I make my intricate artwork with the aid of an Acrobat CCTV.
This year I have purchased the latest model since I wore out my old one by using it just about every day for the past fifteen years.
I encourage you to enter your work in this show if you are visually impaired or blind. I have mailed my submission for 2023 and I hope you will too.
Go ahead. Take the challenge and send in your artworks now.
