Event Details

In this workshop, artist John Bramblitt will focus on how he turned his artistry into a full-time career as well as how his art has helped him, a person with multiple disabilities, become a much happier and independent person. John will also will share unconventional tips on how to get your into galleries and museums. This is the kind of stuff they don’t teaach you in art school. 

As always bring your questions to this interactive artist talk and John will be happy to respond in any helpful way he can. 

About the artist: John Bramblitt makes his living as a visual artist. His works have been sold in over twenty different countries, and he’s received three Presidential Service awards for the art workshops he teaches. He’s painted portraits of skateboarder Tony Hawk and blues legend Pops Carter. He’s given talks about his art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and there has even been a documentary made about him. And . . . he’s blind.

While art was always a major part of John’s life it was not until he lost his sight in 2001 that he began to paint, and it was then that he says, “Art reshaped my life.” John’s paintings are intensely personal, and are mostly taken from real people and events in his life.
