Art Speaking

The New Art Gallery Walsall invites you to a series of audio described talks on specific artworks from its collections for blind and visually impaired people.

The aim is to help visually impaired people to gain access to our magnificent collections and to highlight specially chosen pieces for interpretation describing their form, colour, subject matter and mood.

Carvalho's Rhodroponicum
Sunday 21 June, 1pm - 1.30pm

Join curator Jo Digger for a talk and Keiko Higashi for an audio description of Melanie Carvalho's art work, Rhodroponicum, a collage that brings together ideas of the environment and the modern world and society.

Dod Proctor's The Quiet Hour
Thursday 9 July, 1pm - 1.30pm

Join curator Jo Digger for a talk and Julie Jones for an audio description of Dod Proctor's The Quiet Hour, a serene and atmospheric painting characteristic of the artist's style.

The Art Speaking project is run by Art Sense and has been funded by Arts Council England, West Midlands in partnership with Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, Leamington Spa Art Gallery and Museum and Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
