About

Join us for an informal, sociable online session exploring art through audio-description and conversation for participants with a visual impairment. In this session we will explore artists in the collection with experience of sight loss, including Claude Monet and Edgar Degas. We will hear from invited artist Gill Glover who will speak about her current project, taking inspiration from artists with eyesight issues and exploring how visual impairment influenced their art.

Access to this session will be via Zoom. A telephone number, link and password will be sent out before the session. To book a free place, please use online booking or contact us on 0131 624 6410 or [email protected]
