CALL FOR ARTISTS - ENTRY FORM
(No Entry Fee)
Produced by "ART247 " and "VANITY VIOLENCE" this mixed media gallery exhibition will be held from October 15 to November 13. A reception will be held at ART247, located at 247 Market St., Lockport, NY on October 28, starting at 5:18 pm until 7:18 pm and will include on Location Interviews by Domestic Violence Professionals, Liaisons, and Advocates hosted by WBNY 91.3FM. The event is free and open to the public, with Hors d'oeuvre and refreshments.
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, with accompanying written stories "Voices of DV" - 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 listen to the "Voices of DV" - open doors, open discussions, and shine a light on this important topic.
