But now we turn our attention to a new exhibit that will begin in just a few weeks. Blind artist John Bramblitt of Denton, Texas, will be our guest the week of Jan. 19, when he will go to five area schools to lead art classes. The youngsters fortunate enough to be in his presence will surely learn a lot more than art techniques. Bramblitt's determination to overcome a life-altering challenge---losing his sight at age 30---inspires us all to boldly follow our dreams, no matter what obstacles life throws our way.
Several of Bramblitt's paintings plus the students' artworks will hang in the museum from January 26 to February 26.
The Museum will hold a special reception to honor Bramblitt on Thursday, Jan. 21, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The artist will do a "live" painting session, with the final artwork to be auctioned as a benefit for the Museum. Tickets are $10; free for 2014 and 2015 Friends of the Museum. For information, call us at 318-348-2005.
