“Calling artists! A project is in the works and I’m looking for
members of Art Berkeley (and any other creative types) to participate
in the Global Art Project for Peace! Below you will find the link to
their web site, but here is a quick run down:
“The Goal- To create and display art speaking to a culture of world
peace. This creation would be permanently exchanged with another
“How it Works- We register with the project and they sign us up with an
exchange partner. They maybe in another state or country.
“We can create individual works of art, each individual registers for
$15, or create a group piece, registering for $20. After that the
cost shipping falls on the artist or group.
“As for display, the plan is to find a location that would accommodate
the artists involved and would be willing to display our work and the
work we receive from the exchange (two shows in all). I want to get a
head count and a decision of creating one group piece or individual
pieces or both before approaching possible venues.
“To express your interest please email EuterpesPleasure-at-gmail-dot-com .
The first meeting is tentatively scheduled for Friday, February 10th
at 6:00pm (registration due by February 29th and an be done on line).”
