Community Access to the Arts


Annual Art show



in partnership with the Clark Art Institute

“I Am a Part of Art”—CATA’s Annual Art Show at the Clark Art Institute—features over 50 paintings and drawings by artists with disabilities from across Berkshire County, MA and Columbia County, NY. Through their works in watercolor, prints, pastel, collage, acrylic, and mixed media, CATA artists share their talents and creative perspectives—drawing us into their world and demonstrating the power of art to transcend difference. This artwork is on view at the Clark Art Institute’s Lunder Center at Stone Hill from August 29-October 25, 2020—as well as here, in this virtual exhibit.


HOW TO TOUR THE VIRTUAL EXHIBIT: Select a group of paintings from the gallery below or click “Tour the Exhibit” to start at the beginning. Each page includes bonus videos and more to take you behind the scenes and give you a closer look at the artists and their work.


And don’t forget! Each painting is available for sale! Buy a piece of CATA art and support CATA artists. Every work sold provides a commission to the artist and supports year-round CATA programs for people with disabilities.
