Blind artist Eriko Watanabe's exhibition at Ulster Museum

A new exhibition at the Ulster Museum features work by Eriko Watanabe, a Japanese-born artist who is blind.

The exhibition, entitled Ways Of Seeing And Touching: Ice Age Art And Pictures By The Blind, is part of QUB's School of Psychology programme to mark 55 years of psychology at Queen's.

Eriko creates her art using raised lines and visitors to the exhibition at the Ulster Museum will be able to touch and have an opportunity to create their own similar pieces.

A lecture by Professor John Kennedy to accompany the exhibition will take place at 5pm tomorrow in the Ulster Museum's Lecture Theatre. The exhibition runs until March 18. For more details about the lecture, visit http://go.qub.ac.uk/waysofseeing.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

It's time to take charge of your finances. You can't relax unless you have some money in the bank. Therefore, you should land a good job that brings a steady income. Don't be afraid to ask for more money than you are initially offered. A show of courage will pave the way for a good working relationship with your boss. You're tired of giving away your precious talent for a pittance. Stand in your own defence. If you don't, nobody else will.More
