CALL FOR ARTISTS - ENTRY FORM
(No Entry Fee)
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. As a means of raising awareness about Domestic Violence, ART247 with VANITY VIOLENCE and WBNY 91.3FM is hosting the 2nd Annual "Voices of DV" Exhibition.
The exhibit's goal will be to feature works by individuals whose lives were touched by domestic violence. The pieces - from paintings, to drawings, photography, and mixed media - will touch on a range of emotions and experiences by the points of view of those who have been confronted with domestic violence in some form in their own lives directly, through the direct or indirect experiences of friends or family, and/or by emergency first response experiences.
In many cases, the cycle of abuse relies heavily on the abuse remaining a secret and a topic of taboo in order to enable abuse to perpetuate behind closed doors... we ask you to please submit your work and a brief paragraph - your "voice" - to this exhibition to help open doors, open discussions, and shine a light on this important topic.
All entries must be original to the submitting Artist/Contributor. A maximum of 3 items will be accepted per Artist/Contributor. Work must be professionally mounted and framed. Fees: This exhibition is free to submit to, we do appreciate donations with your entry to help support our gallery and future events. Donations are not required for entry. Donations with your entry can be made out to ART247, LLC. Submit entry pieces with all forms to ART247, 247 Market Street, Lockport, New York 14094.
