In New Hampshire Monday November 22nd: Art for the BlindHave you ever wondered what a painting feels like? Or how cuddly a sculpture can be? Those questions were answered in a new exhibit that was showcased at the Sharon Arts Center in Peterborough. Heather Hamel shows us how the exhibit was able to remove barriers.

The idea of tapping this imagination inspired the "Art House", a project sponsored by the Lion's Club chapter in Sweden.
The project allows students to express themselves through sculptures.Statues and reliefs made by students over the last four years or so are found all over the shelves and walls of the 70-square-meter house.
Bui The Thanh, one of the students, said he put all his memories of the world into his sculptures.

This is the first time the duo--- Mahesh Umrania and Kanchan Pamnani--- are showcasing at an international exhibition after having enrolled to study photography with Partho Bhowmick as part of his Blind With Camera project.
Umrani and Pamnani were Bhowmick's first students in 2006 after he founded the organisation. The duo has attended workshops over the years and now contributed to the images that Bhowmick will showcase at the exhibition. "The 30-40 images that we're showcasing have been taken by numerous blind photographers. They're the best of the lot, and prove that even blind people perceive," Bhowmick says.
