The Arts Council of Wilson is excited to partner with Wilson County Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services, a Division of the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, on a new exhibition entitled “Engaging the Senses.”

This exhibit will feature works that are inclusive of artists with disabilities, as well as typical artists who engage the senses in non-typical ways. The intent of the show is to showcase the talents of artists living with hearing or vision loss, as well as providing a showcase for typical artists whose work activates other senses in addition to sight.

Submission of artwork that cannot be experienced through touch is discouraged for this show.

The exhibition will be on display Sept. 3 through Oct. 3.

Entry deadline is May 15. For information on how to submit artwork, visit the Arts Council of Wilson website at: http://www.wilsonarts.com/artistopps/, or contact Dee Dee Oliver, visual arts coordinator, at deedee@wilsonarts.com.
