Juried show number two for the year... Tactilis. This show was at the community college, in conjunction with Art Access, an organization that provides creative opportunities for the disabled and disadvantaged. Tactilis had an interesting theme, showcasing art that was meant to be touched, so that it could be appreciated by those who are visually impaired.

I was excited when I received the email with the call for entries, as I had recently gone on a bender creating ceramic pieces that were intended to be picked up an touched, so Tactilis was right up my alley. I decided I wanted to create a new work, a multimedia sculpture covered with texture and moveable pieces made with my glass beads.

Judging from the reactions of the visitors to the show, I think my foray into touchable art was a success. Even though I couldn't 'read it' thought it was really cool to have my label for the piece printed in braille!
