The Art of Being Female: Works by the Women of Vision

Oct

For the past fourteen years, a group of women has made the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens their monthly venue as a reprieve through the communicative power and beauty of the visual and literary arts.

During visits to the Museum, the women learn about art history, create art using paint, clay and collage, and explore the gardens and galleries.  They also write expressive poetry and record their memoirs.

What makes these women exceptional and extraordinary is that each experiences low vision or blindness.  This artful program serves as a vehicle for personal reflections and the development of awareness for all.

The Cummer celebrates the creativity of this special group with an annual exhibition representing Art Beyond Sight month that serves as a symbol for the transformative nature of art, both for the creator and for the viewer.  The Women of Vision continue to engage and inspire the community through accessibility as the program is observed as a national model.

This exhibition represents the strength, beauty and influence of women, realized through diversity and life’s hardships and triumphs alike.
