Sighted Artist Shares Her Art with the Blind Community
The Willoughby Art Gallery at Clovernook Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired is pleased to announce the opening of “Hands on Art” by Harriet Kaufman, September 5-26, 2014. This exhibit encourages individuals to appreciate art through their sense of touch. The opening reception will be September 5, 2014 6pm-9pm, at The Willoughby Art Gallery in the Proctor Center at 7000 Hamilton Avenue, North College Hill. Over the past 16 years Kaufman has sculpted limestone, walnut, birch, steel, duct tape, and fabric. Her work is featured in private collections throughout the United States and abroad. Her art has been featured at the Cincinnati Art Academy, Baker-Hunt, Grailville, Harriett Beecher Stowe House, Kennedy Heights Arts Center, and the YWCA. Harriet Kaufman has participated in workshops with Walter Driesbach at the Art Academy and studied wood carving and clay sculpture with Stephanie Cooper. “My interest is in form, line, and especially negative space. I find that the mere suggestion of a woman’s body gives me the freedom to explore these concepts” Says Kaufman. The Willoughby Art Gallery features art by persons who are blind or visually impaired and art that is tactile, allowing greater access to individuals who are blind or visually impaired. Gallery hours will be Monday – Friday 8am-5pm or by appointment. For more information please call Scott Wallace at 513-522-3860.
