Award-winning artwork by Peterborough artist Lynda Todd, who is visually impaired, is gracing the cover of a limited-edition 2022 calendar from the Canadian Council of the Blind.

The calendar is a fundraiser for the national organization that brings together people in the community with vision loss and offers vision enhancement products for those in need.

“We are striving to let the community know we are here and we are here to help those in need,” says Leslie Yee, chair of the organization’s Peterborough chapter, in a media release.

In July, Todd’s acrylic-on-canvas painting ‘Blossom’ won first place in a competition hosted by Spirit of the Hills, an association of artists in Northumberland County.

‘Blossom’ was also featured on the cover of the May-June issue of Occupational Therapy Now, the magazine of the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists.

The Canadian Council of the Blind calendar costs $20 and can be ordered by emailing ccbpeterborough@gmail.com. For more information about the organization’s Peterborough chapter, visit ccbpeterborough.com.
