The exhibit is the culmination of hundreds of CATA visual arts workshops serving teens, adults, and elders with disabilities. Through these year-round workshops, CATA artists grow creatively, learn new techniques, and find community working side by side with others. Throughout the pandemic, CATA artists have continued to connect and create art in online workshops. Many of the works in this exhibit were created during this period.

ALL ARTWORK IS AVAILABLE FOR SALE! Purchase CATA artwork and support CATA artists. Every sale supports commissions for the individual artists. To purchase artwork, contact Kara Smith at [email protected]. Additionally, artwork will be available to purchase through our online webshop in late July, 2021.

I Am a Part of Art is sponsored by Berkshire Life Charitable Foundation, October Mountain Financial Advisors, Berkshire Magazine, Frames on Wheels, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and other generous supporters.
