HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) — A West Virginia eye doctor has combined her work background and love of painting to produce a multisensory art exhibit.
Dozens of paintings by Dr. Stephanie Skolik are on display at the Huntington Museum of Art. Alongside them are several 3-D clay interpretations, produced by the Huntington ophthalmologist, that visitors, including blind and visually impaired people, can touch.
The exhibit includes Braille labels and bar codes that can be scanned by smartphones to hear audio narratives of Skolik's work.
The paintings date back to 1970, when Skolik produced her first at age 12.
The exhibit is called "Inner and Outer Vision," and it runs through Jan. 25.
