Each year, we feature the work of artists affected by multiple sclerosis in our annual MSAA Art Showcase, including highlighting one artist each month as our Artist of the Month. This month – our first month of the 2021-22 MS Art Showcase – we are proud to feature artist Janet Chojnacki of Wisconsin Rapids, WI:
About the Artist:
“After my diagnosis, I needed to move back to the family homestead so I could be around people who loved me and could watch over me. This allowed me to create art in the room that my dad built for my mom, who was a fantastic painter. Without MS, I wouldn’t have this opportunity to spend my days doing what I love in a place that I love. Art is what fills my days, calms my soul and occupies my mind. MS took a lot from me, but it will not take this too.”

How do I submit my work to be considered for artist of the month?
Thank you for your interest. The submission period is closed for the current 2021-2022 MSAA Art Showcase, but stay tuned because we will be opening up for new submissions at the end of this year for the next Showcase in 2022-2023. For more information, or if you have any additional questions about the 2021 MSAA Art Showcase, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
