CATA’s Annual Art Show I Am a Part of Art features more than 150 paintings and drawing by artists with disabilities from across Berkshire County, MA and Columbia County, NY. This vibrant exhibit is on display at two locations: the Clark Art Institute’s Lunder Center at Stone Hill in Williamstown, MA and the Lichtenstein Center for the Arts in Pittsfield, MA.
I Am a Part of Art 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.
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].
I Am a Part of Art is sponsored by October Mountain Financial Advisors, Berkshire Life Charitable Foundation, Berkshire Magazine, Frames on Wheels, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, and other generous supporters.
