Hi all,

 it's a pleasure to share that Institute for Vision Rehabilitation, LV
Prasad Eye Institute was able to organize a Tactile
 painting exhibition on 4th June, 2019 at its premises.  The exhibit
had 16 artists with
 vision loss displaying their artworks.  They had created their
 paintings in last month during two workshops, the first one was all
 about learning to use colors, various tactile material and execution
 on canvas.  During the second one, they got to create their paintings
 after coming up with interesting themes and ideas.  I was so anxious
 how all this will turn out, but I am so glad the exhibition was a
 grand success.  There were over 130 visitors, both sighted and
 visually impaired who enjoyed the artworks. Local media came down to
 cover the event. I am happy that this event was able to spread
 awareness among the community about the abilities of visually impaired.

 I am sharing the description and Dropbox links to images of each
 painting  below.

 Despite the darkness in the night, the beauty of the swan on the lake
 fills the air with splendor. The lotus exudes its fragrance adding to
 the existing magic. Collectively, both elements in this painting
 convey that nature’s beauty can exist even in darkest moments.

 represents that mankind is too busy with affairs of life, that it
 rarely has time to spend time in nature.
