Passionate Focus

Guild for the Blind’s Passionate Focus Art exhibit is looking for original works created by artists who are legally blind. A jury, comprised of artists, curators and art educators, has the sole responsibility for selecting the works for the exhibit. Selected artists choose their own listing price and receive 70% of the sale (30% goes to Guild for the Blind). Interested applicants must send a 35 mm slide, photograph, or electronic file of their work to Guild for the Blind.  Digital format is preferred. Actual pieces of art are not accepted during the application process.  There is a $30.00 non-refundable submission fee for all artists.  Make check payable to Guild for the Blind. 

 All applications and checks should be sent to:
