Scottish War Blinded unveils virtual gallery of veterans' Kelvingrove Museum exhibition

Posted: 02/04/2020 | Scottish War Blinded

Scottish War Blinded are proud to present our virtual art gallery, featuring art work by veterans with sight loss who developed their creative streak in the Hawkhead Centre's art room.

These wonderful paintings and sculpture pieces went on display in Glasgow's iconic Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in early 2020.

The exhibition marked a huge personal milestone for these veterans - many of whom had not tried out art before their sight loss, and were inspired by volunteer art tutor, Michael McAllister, to take up their creativity.

Michael himself has a visual impairment, and works closely with many veterans at the Hawkhead Centre to adapt their skills, help build their confidence, and develop their artistic flair.

 We hope you enjoy exploring this virtual gallery! The video includes full audio description.
