4TH ANNUAL VOICES OF DV ART AND MEDIA EXHIBITION

OCTOBER 21, 2017 - NOVEMBER 12, 2017

 

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. As a means of raising awareness about Domestic Violence, ART247 is hosting the 4th annual "Voices of DV" Exhibition.

 

CALL FOR ARTISTS - ENTRY FORM
(No Entry Fee)


Produced by "ART247" this mixed media gallery exhibition will be held from October 21 to November 12.

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.

This year's gallery exhibit will be held in a more intimate setting in smaller galleries at the complex, and behind closed doors. This exhibit explicitly challenges the viewer to make the choice of confronting the topic of Domestic Violence, by giving the viewer the choice to open the door and view the exhibit, or continue without seeing it despite knowing it may exist. Much the way people in society are confronted with the topic of domestic violence in their everyday lives.


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.
