I Am A Part of Art showcases 185 original works of art, representing more than 125 artists with disabilities. Works are professionally matted and framed, and all pieces are for sale, with proceeds supporting commissions for individual artists.
The curated selections include a variety of media such as acrylic, tempera, watercolor, oil and chalk pastel, charcoal, and mixed media, and features abstract and representational paintings and drawings.
This annual exhibit is the culmination of more than 500 visual arts workshops that CATA holds throughout the year in day programs, residences, schools, elder care settings, and in the CATA Studio—all offering people with disabilities opportunities to stretch and grow creatively, learn new techniques, and find community by working side by side with others.
CATA workshops take place all across the Berkshires and in Columbia County, and are led by talented faculty who are also artists themselves; Jeff Gagnon, Pat Hogan, Marlene Marshall, Janice Shields, Stefanie Weber, and Michael Wolski.
I Am a Part of Art is generously funded by Jim & Joan Hunter; Frames on Wheels; The Fund for Williamstown, a fund of Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation; and other generous supporters.
