The 2012 Art for Peace and Justice online art show begins on September 21st, 2012, the International Day of Peace. It will be exhibited online until January 2013, so it will be great exposure for your work! This show is free to enter.
FACEBOOK Page. This is not the exhibit page but will be showcasing some — possibly all – of the artwork entries we get.
Occupy and other similar movement artists are welcome and invited to participate. We have gotten some great entries so far but need more! Send entries to this email address: email@example.com
The art exhibit’s main subject matter is war and peace, but other issues such as economic justice, climate justice, environmental justice, and other social issues are welcome. You can submit digital files (up to 6). The individual files should not exceed 1 MB in size. The work must be new to this site, not something already here in the galleries. The images you submit should be the size and resolution you wish to be displayed in the art show. You must do your own cropping, etc., for presentation.
One Best of Show award will be given out. Two Runners Up will also be awarded. It’s very possible we have Honorable Mention awards too, based on number of entries we get. Live artists only are eligible for awards. Continue reading →
This work of art is called “The Missing Part” and you can read about it here. It was made by artist Brittany Kieler for American female war vet Jamie Murray, USAF. It’s part of a war-themed art exhibit titled “Not At Ease” with the theme of women vet experiences. It’s not necessarily anti-war but its outlook attempts to represent the war experiences of female veterans. The war vets’ war experiences were varied. The exhibit is partially online at this site, and in real life, you can see it in Madison, Wisconsin, at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum.
Personally I can’t figure out how women can participate in war at all, and for that reason it’s even more interesting to me.
