Gallery Night

Artwork by Wisconsinites who are blind or visually impaired

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. This year, we are featuring the work of eight artists from around Wisconsin, working in a variety of formats. Please watch the recorded Gallery Night event and 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.”
