      Hello, Bright Eyes Art Exhibit at Del Ray Artisans August 7–29, 2020

      The Hello, Bright Eyes art exhibit raises the visibility of healthy vision. Come take a peek at the art from August 7–29, 2020 at Del Ray Artisans gallery. This exhibit features artwork focusing on eyes, eyesight, or all the wonders the eyes provide us throughout our years. Some of the artwork in this exhibit reuses old glasses, lenses and eyeglass 'arms' donated by the Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan Washington®. Come see these upcycled pieces, along with paintings, photographs, sculptures and more. Join us in August to see what artists created for this fun exhibit!

      This exhibit will also include special events for our eyes (and other senses)! All events require registering in advance. Check Del Ray Artisans’ website for more information: DelRayArtisans.org/event/hello-bright-eyes
