Get ready for 2023 Gallery Night!
Friday, November 3
754 Williamson St., Madison
5 – 8 p.m.

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, including acrylic and watercolor paint, pen and ink drawing, digital illustration, fiber arts and woodworking. After two years of virtual-only Gallery Nights, we were delighted to return to an in-person format in 2022, and our doors will be open once again for this year’s event. As we have done the last few years, we will also feature the pieces in an online virtual exhibit on our website. We look forward to seeing you on November 3!

Enjoy last year’s online virtual gallery below!

“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.”
