6:00 – 7:30 p.m.

Since the Council’s first Gallery Night event in 2011, we take the opportunity to exhibit art created by artists who are blind or visually impaired. Plans for 2021 are under consideration. In 2020, fourteen artists ranging in age and artform participated. You can watch the virtual Gallery Night reception on YouTube at the link below.

Due to COVID-19, a virtual exhibit was created for 2020. We are planning a similar format for 2021. Please contact Lynn at LWelch@WCBlind.org prior to August 15 to submit artwork for consideration.

“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.”
