2023 Gallery Night
Friday, November 3
754 Williamson St., Madison

Join us on Friday, November 1 for Gallery Night!

For more than a decade, the Council has hosted Gallery Night events to celebrate and showcase the work of Wisconsin artists with vision loss who create in a range of media.

Over the years, we have featured work in a wide range of media, including paintings, photographs, sculptures, digital drawings, fiber arts, ceramics, and even a couple of exquisite, hand-tied fishing flies!

We’re currently accepting submissions from Wisconsin artists living with blindness or low vision to display at this year’s event. If you would like your work to be considered for 2024 Gallery Night, please email two to three photos of your work to Communications Director Bob Jacobson at

Include the following information in your email:

  1. Your name as you would like it displayed if you are selected.
  2. City or town of residence
  3. Phone number
  4. Title(s) of the work submitted
  5. Medium used for each piece, e.g. oil on canvas, ceramic pottery, knitted wool yarn, digital drawing printed on paper, etc.
  6. The physical dimensions of each piece.

You can still check out all the pieces that were on display at last year’s Gallery Night by exploring our online virtual gallery.

Watch our “Meet the Artists” video below or on YouTube.

“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.”
