Lawrence Street Gallery presents “How Many More?” a viewer juried anti-assault weapon themed exhibit where local artists have created artwork depicting how participating artists regard the use and ownership of assault weapons. This show is all-media and will run from March 1 through March 31. Opening reception is March 3 , 6-9pm, and is free and open to the public.
Jan Brown, LSG member artist, was very upset after the Orlando shootings and proposed a show for the gallery dealing with this theme. Fellow member artists and her artist friends were very supportive and want to use their talents and ideas to create artwork depicting how we regard the use and ownership of assault weapons. The first 60 artists who enter the show will be guaranteed that one of their pieces will be in the show. Artists will be asked to write a short blurb on why the piece was created, thus allowing viewers a chance to see into the artists’ minds as well as observe their creations. Visitors to the gallery will be invited to vote on the artwork that speaks to them, and the winner will be announced at the Closing Reception on March 31, 6-9 pm.
