ArtWorking is a Madison-based nonprofit that provides career development and support for artists and entrepreneurs with disabilities. ArtWorking is the creative and professional home to nearly 30 local artists, many of whom own and operate their own small businesses. Artists create a diverse range of paintings, prints and drawings, as well as handmade goods and products based on their original designs. All profits from the sale of fine art and products go directly to the artists and their businesses. The organization celebrated 10 years of service in Fall 2016, and continues to gain momentum with new artists and enduring community ties.

"My artwork is influenced by Miksang, a form of contemplative photography which seeks to clearly see and to appreciate the vividness of the visual world. I photograph ordinary objects, viewed from an unusual perspective with an emphasis on bright colors and subtle shifts of light. I would like to think that my current exhibit represents the efforts of all those who discover artistic expression later in life, and who continue to learn, to create and to flourish." - Colette Girard

When: May 2-30

Image: Eagle Dancer, by Mike Rausch


"The challenge for photographers of Powwows is to not just capture the color and motion of the dancers, but to provide at least a limited feel for the spirit of the Powwow. Beyond the singing, drumming and dancing, there are family, spirituality and a connection to the ancestors. My goal is to provide images of Powwows that express in at least a limited way the color and motion and the spirit of the Powwow." - Mike Rausch

"All of my work begins as a bolt of white cloth. I add color using fiber reactive dyes and assorted resists. I am exploring the interplay of warm and cool as I design and stitch my work. I make work for the wall and the bed and take commissions. I am one of the most represented artists at the UW Hospital. My studio is on the near east side of Madison." - Cherie St. Cyr
