Categories include painting, photography, sculpture, drawings and mixed media. Each participate may enter up to four pieces in each category. Entries will be accepted now through June 1, 2012. /Insight/ artwork is selected on the basis of originality of concept, expressive use of media, artistic excellence, and the ability of the piece to inspire dialogue about the role of vision in the creative process. The CECA /Insight/ Art Exhibit will celebrate the artistic achievements of blind and visually impaired artists who are inspired to create a visual realm, focusing on their artistic abilities and talents rather than their disabilities. The exhibit will educate the public about eye diseases, visual impairment and vision rehabilitation. An open house is scheduled for August.
