This is a fantastic article about an artist and gallery owner who happens to be blind. His gallery, A Gathering of the Tribes, is celebrating its 20th anniversary. (Hyperallergic.com)
If the only person you have heard of who is blind was Mary from Little House on the Prairie, this article will be a new perspective. Don't feel bad! When Tyler became blind, that was my only reference point also. You can only learn what you are exposed to, and I am happy to help in that process.
