ST. PETERSBURG - The Pinellas Braille Group, The Teresa and George Detzel Fund of the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, PowerDesign Inc., Poor Richard’s Framer, the Morean Arts Center and the St. Petersburg Lions Club will sponsor “You Can Feel What We See,” an exhibition of artwork by visually-impaired students of Pinellas County Schools, running Sept. 20 through Oct. 22, in the Risser Gallery at the Morean Arts Center, 719 Central Ave., St. Petersburg.

A reception for student artists and the public will take place Saturday, Oct. 14, 5 to 9 p.m., during the Second Saturday Gallery Walk. Refreshments, like the artwork, will be tactile.

The concept behind this show is to introduce the sighted viewer to the way visually impaired people view their world, literally, with their hands. Most of the over 70 pieces of artwork submitted are touchable and people are encouraged to touch the artwork in a gentle, methodical way that will bring out the whole picture after “feeling” the sum of the parts. Students create all of the work in the Pinellas County school system.

PINELLAS PARK - As a child growing up on a Kansas farm, Nancy Lauby drew every chance she could get.

Animals on the farm. The Midwestern landscape. All of it was fodder for her young artistic vision.

So it’s no surprise that today, decades later, as an artist she’s drawn to painting realistic nature scenes and wildlife.

“I have always been drawn to the nature and wildlife,” she said. “I really do connect that with growing up in the country.”
