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

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.

2023 Gallery Night was a fantastic event! Friends old and new streamed into the Council offices to enjoy the work of eight talented Wisconsinites living with vision loss. Their creations included paintings, photographs, digital drawings, knitted and crocheted pieces, wood furniture and carvings, ceramics, and even a couple of exquisite, hand-tied fishing flies…something new for us!

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

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

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.”
