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
1. The night beauty
Painting by: Chetna Punjabi
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.
2. A sunny day
Painting by: Namira Samrin
The bright sun from the sky radiates its heat to the whole world as it
inspires all creation to be cheerful and positive. This painting
portrays the trees and the house beneath the sun enjoying its radiance
on a perfect sunny day!
3. Wonder flower
Painting by: Syed Abbu Bakar
Cheery and happy flower, always following the sun, turning its back to
darkness, standing proud, tall and strong even with its head full of
seeds. Is there a better flower than this one? This painting is
simple, yet it aptly describes the wonder flower, the sunflower!
4. The full moon night
Painting by: P. Abhilash
Decorating the night sky, the full moon stands in its fullest glory.
As it casts its silver light upon the sleeping world, only a few
appreciate its beauty. This painting represents the loyal
companionship between the full moon and night.
5. Bloom room
Painting by: P. Sai Prashanth
A cluster of blooming flowers in red and yellow expresses grandeur and
positivity. Although in no particular arrangement, they reflect
absolute richness in an orange background. This painting simply
depicts moments of celebration!
6. Red velvet
Painting by T. Sridevi
Their sweet smell fills the room, their red color, a visual treat.
These elegant flowers with their velvety texture are ready and waiting
to be touched. This painting depicts how a basket of flowers
invigorates one’s senses.
7. Sailing home
Painting by: Sunil Rathod
As dusk takes over, the birds of the air return to their nest.
Similarly, a boat sails back to a shore, finally returning home after
its long voyage. This painting is a reminder to those who are away
that their home awaits them no matter where they are.
8. Majestic evening
Painting by: K. Sai Kiran
Blazed with beautiful sunset, every evening adorns the west with a
crown of red and orange. It welcomes the dusk like a good old friend
as a perfect end to a long day. Gleaming in its glory, this painting
depicts a majestic evening!
9. Are you there?
Painting by KKD. Pavan Kumar
, The rising sun, the silent waters, the chirping bird, the majestic
mountains and refreshing greenery, what more can be asked for
rejuvenating oneself! However, the empty swing in this painting
represents that mankind is too busy with affairs of life, that it
rarely has time to spend time in nature.
10. Joyful jump
Painting by: P. Shiva Reddy
Back and forth they go, reflecting hues of orange and yellow. In
their little pond they dance and make merry, wonder what’s their
secret of happiness! This cute painting certainly brings smile to many
faces as the two gold fishes jump with joy.
11. Happy flowers
Painting by: B. Madhav Kumar
Buds blossom to flowers, some passionate red and some loyal blue.
They beautify our homes, transferring their optimistic energy around.
Spreading happiness in abundance, this painting will certainly cheer
12. Hillside secret
Painting by: G. Akhilesh
The crescent moon sneaks into the sky as silence takes over. It casts
its light upon the dry groves on a hillside. This semi modern art,
surely mesmerizes one to its hidden secrets.
13. You and I
Painting by: S. Pallavi
From garden to garden a butterfly wanders in search of a sweet flower.
It flutters its wings as it takes flight and its joy has no bounds
when it finally finds one. This painting expresses a butterfly’s
delight upon finding its colorful companion.
14. Flying high
Painting by: A. Shravani
Through clouds and skies, it flies. Its vibrant colors catches
attention of many eyes. This painting is a representation of one’s
goals through a hot air balloon that flies high!
15. I see hope
Painting by: A. Mounika
The empty well and an abandoned bucket represent drought stricken
land. Yet, surviving such harshest of times, the few leaves indicate
that there is hope even in hopeless situations. Depicting a simple
landscape, this painting encourages one to keep holding on to their
hope even in despair.
16. A beach house
Painting by: Y. Rama Krishna
The smell of the sand, the sound of the sea, the cold breeze of
coastal trees reminds one of a beach. It’s an added fun when all this
is experienced while staying in a beach house on a long vacation.
This painting certainly reminds one of memorable moments at a
beautiful sea coast.
It would be interesting to know what you all think of the artwork. I
We are planning to conduct more workshops and exhibitions in future too.
Hopefully many others will be interested to participate in them.
