Jul 29 –
Guest Speaker Series: Claire Spector, Textile Artist
Monday, July 29, 1-2:00 p.m.
Legally blind textile artist Claire Spector sews by feel. Her “Blind Stitching: Vis-AbilityTM” exhibition of contemporary textile art will be on display in the LightHouse Gallery on the first floor of our 1155 Market St. headquarters, June 8 through December 20, 2019.
The exhibition explores working in different ways and stepping out into a wider world after vision loss and blindness through the medium of contemporary textile art. Claire finds following the tactile work of sewing to be meditative. Sharing art guided by touch opens dialogue and new opportunities to explore fresh possibilities in making tactile art. Claire joins us to share her own journey through the intersection of artistry and blindness. Please RSVP to Adult Program Coordinator Serena Olsen at email@example.com or 415-694-7316.
