SAVE THE DATE! 2022 Gallery Night is scheduled for November 4. 

We are currently accepting submissions from artists who are visually impaired to feature in this years gallery. Information on how to submit your work is below.

Since the Council’s first Gallery Night event in 2011, we have taken the opportunity each year to exhibit art created by artists who are blind or visually impaired. 

In 2021, we featured the work of eight artists from around Wisconsin, working in a variety of formats. Please visit the virtual exhibit and watch the recorded Gallery Night event to hear about the work in the artists’ own words. 

And please visit the virtual gallery, which will be live on this website shortly before the event. Meanwhile, we invite you to watch the recorded 2020 Gallery Night event and view the work that was featured in last year’s virtual exhibit.

“I believe my visual impairment modifies my art. Our job as artists is to take a feeling or experience and share that with the world in a creative way. My visual impairment gives me a unique perspective to share, and I’m glad people who came to Gallery Night at the Council got to share in that experience.”
