Callout: Art against War

Tue Aug 8, 2006 Miss Vicky 

Cube Gallery is putting together a non-juried exhibition of anti-war art. Got something to say, and a creative way to say it? Here's the callout for the show:

Say No To Silence and Complicity
Art Against War - Cube Gallery
Aug. 30 - Sept. 3

As artists, it is time to speak out. The violence, bloodshed and war crimes being committed against the civilians of Lebanon, Palestinian and Israel alike -- and Canada's complicity in this conflict is a call to action. War is being waged on the bodies of children, the weak, the elderly and on the environment. The age-old war theatre of cowards. Regardless of sides - we want to stand up for the victims of war. We can stand by and watch or we can protest.

Use your art to denounce Canada's acquiescence to this war. Paint, Scrape, Cut, Paste, Make, Break, Rebuild, Appropriate - but make art that will be a cry against war and a call for peace. Bring or send your anti-war art (one piece only, please) in the medium of your choice to the Cube Gallery 10- 4 pm, Monday, August 28. Be a part of this exhibition and be a voice among artists against war. This is a non- juried event. Please do not send proposals or submissions - just do it! This is our opportunity as artists to be heard, to protest, to send prayers of support to the victims of the bombings in Lebanon.

The only criteria for this show, is that your art is a protest against war - no apologists please. If you are sending from out of town -- please arrange for pick up Sunday Sept. 3 or send it with an SASE. (If you wish to sell your art -- 50% goes to the artist, 25% of the sale will go to Médecins Sans Frontières and 25% to Cube gallery, but your art does not have to be for sale)

A vernissage/fundraiser for Médecins Sans Frontières and their work in Lebanon, with music and poetry (let us know if you want to be in the line-up at the open-mike) will be held on Wednesday, August 30 the art show will run until Sunday Sept. 3

Its nice to protest against war but it sure isn't going to help stop terrorism. I'm sorry, I hate to stir up a hornet's nest here but their priorities are out of whack. Yes, innocent children are being killed and hurt, its the ugly part of war. If we stopped war because of innocents, we wouldn't have gotten rid of Hitler and the like. There is a place and time to protest war but this isn't one of them.

Ask yourselves these 2 questions:

What would happen if Hezbollah disarmed?

What would happen if Israel disarmed?

You'll find that the answer to the first question is the only answer.

The terrorists first though. Makes more sense that way.

I don't think that there any blameless parties here except the innocent civilians on both sides being victimized on a daily basis in this conflict.

Unfortunately, in every war there are innocent civilians. WW1, WW2, Korea and so on. Doesn't take away the necessity of war sometimes. So far, Hezbollah doesn't want to disarm and since their goal is to wipe Israel off the map, I would put a huge amount of blame upon them and their supporters. Iran's revolutionary guards have been found among the deceased among Hezbollah terrorists. Its clear what their goals are and why we should speak out against them in particular instead of not taking sides. When you sit on the fence, nothing happens.
