Each year the Council is honored to display artwork by people who are blind or visually impaired. As part of our mission to empower people and our value of inclusivity, we find it important to actively seek and welcome artists from the BVI community.

Do you know someone who is blind or visually impaired who expresses creativity through photography, woodworking, painting, fiber arts or other art forms? The Council is seeking artists to participate in MMOCA’s Fall Gallery Night on Friday, October 4. The event will be from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Wisconsin Council of the Blind & Visually Impaired in Madison. Learn more about the event at WCBlind.org/Events.

To be considered, submit two to three photos of your work to hwente@WCBlind.org by Thursday, August 16.

Participating in Gallery Night is a great way to showcase your work and help others to learn about the diverse talents and contributions of people who are blind and visually impaired.

All artists are welcome to sell their pieces and art will be on display at the Council through mid-November. In the past, artwork has sold to individuals, the Council and UW Health clinics. Art may be eligible for traveling exhibit to the Council’s partner organizations with permission of the artist.
