Art Exhibition for Visually Impaired Seeks Artwork


reVISION Art Exhibition 2020

reVISION will be an exhibition of works by artists who are encouraged to explore the world of art through the eyes of the visually impaired. This show will turn the traditional gallery presentation into a tactile, auditory, olfactory and/or spatial experience. If you are interested in submitting your work, they ask that you challenge yourself to re-imagine the boundaries of your art and the way one experiences it. If your submission does not have at minimum a prominent tactile component it will not be considered for the show. Because of the overwhelming response by artists, this year’s show will be juried.

The intention of reVISION goes beyond a traditional art exhibition. It is to give those with vision loss a chance to explore an art show at their own leisure and in their own way. reVISION will also challenge those who have their sight to experience the art through other sensory channels as sleep shades will be made available as well as visual impairment simulator goggles. With this show, they hope to create awareness, spark dialogue and expose your work to different groups of patrons.

They are aware that artists in the community are asked to provide work and talent numerous times during the year for many worthy causes; however, they ask that you give special consideration to participating in reVISION. They respectfully request a 50% commission of the final sale price of your work if it is to sell. The money raised from reVISION will help VIPS continue to provide early intervention to Indiana’s infants and toddlers with blindness/low vision. They had a record number of pieces sell last year and hope that is the case this year, too! Remember while the agency works with young children, they are not the primary patron of the show so creating work for an older audience is suggested.

reVISION will be held at the Indiana Interchurch Center Art Gallery in March and April 2020. The opening night is scheduled for Friday, March 13, 2020, at the Indiana Interchurch Center Art Gallery in Indianapolis. reVISION is sponsored by Bose McKinney & Evans LLP.

The deadline for submissions is Valentine’s Day, Friday, February 14, 2020!
