dis An art exhibition

An image of red hand on gold background

Beacons: Red Hand 5 copyright by Annie Leist

I was struck by the painting “Beacons” by artist Annie Leist; she captures the red pedestrian signal light as a beacon, and also paints other images from the city streets. This is also true for me,
As I slowly lose my vision all I might see is this lighted red hand as I walk up the street.

Next weekend is Disability Pride Parade weekend and there will be artist talks, Saturday July 8, 2017 at the exhibition of dis, a group exhibition featuring work by several artists experiencing and exploring disability.

three paintings, each of a diffrent wheelchair

The paintings by artist Gordon Sasaki, each of a wheelchair against a colorful patterned background gave me a new perspective on the interesting idea of a wheelchair as a subject, and its importance to the artist for mobility.
