Current Unity Gallery Exhibit: Laura Wright, "Insight: Everyday Visions"
Gallery Opening and Reception - Sunday, Nov. 12, Noon - 2 p.m.
Laura Wright has always been one to face her challenges. Though she never completed High School she later received several college degrees and then at age 50, she completed her studies at Harvard University. Laura was also once named International Single Parent of the Year. Ms. Wright has always been a visual orientated person, finding beauty and interest in all that she saw on a daily basis.
In 2009 a stroke left Laura with very limited vision. She mourned the loss of her ability to fully see or to take photographs, to share with others, of all the simple sights she cherished everyday.
One day Laura felt moved to take a photo, later on her computer adapted by the Olmsted Center for Sight, she saw that she was still able to capture images of her loved ones, pets, antiques, her hobbies, and all the diverse people, places and activities that she finds so beautiful and inspiring. Some of her work was published in magazines along with History articles she wrote. Laura also produced professional DVD's
on local subjects using her photography,
and she also has a greeting card line.
This exhibit “Insight: Everyday Visions”, is a collection of her work since her vision loss, which is meant to inspire other to look and really see everyday visions.
