Presented by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Gallery Night is a Madison-wide event in which participating businesses showcase art and invite the public in to see their spaces. 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. The Council’s accessible exhibit features works created by artists who are blind or visually impaired.

After each Gallery Night, the exhibit is open to the public through November 15. Please make an appointment for a personal guided tour by calling 608-255-1166. All are welcome. This year’s exhibit will most likely be virtual.

“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.”
