This exhibition encouraged the artist to interpret one of the most vital, desired, powerful, sacred, and enjoyed resources on earth in their own unique, individual style, whether abstract, graphic, or representational.

Silent No More: Straight Talk About Guns    Call for Entry Deadline - October 31, 2017

An enormous divide exists between people who cherish their heritage of gun ownership and others who are concerned that guns contribute to the rising tide of gun violence. If we are to find ways to reduce injury and death from gun violence, we must find a way to bridge this divide and talk openly and honestly about potential solutions while at the same time respecting legitimate uses for firearms.

Textile Posters    Artists have been selected

The history of the poster as art started towards the end of the 19th century, when Jules Cheret began creating posters as a recognizable form of public announcement. Soon posters were liberally plastered on public walls throughout Europe, promoting shows, circuses, and manufactured goods. However, the widespread popularity of posters did not arrive in America until World War I, serving as the perfect vehicle for patriotic propaganda.
