This exhibition examines a series of important issues and effects of war not commonly addressed by the news or arts media including: post-traumatic stress; service by gays in the military/don't ask don't tell; gender issues; what constitutes maleness in war and the long term effects of loss of a child on family. The conflicts are primarily in Iraq and Afghanistan but the issues are universal.
Presented are six projects by four accomplished and award-winning photographers, two men and two women: Samantha Appleton, Vincent Cianni, Ashley Gilbertson, and Stephanie Sinclair. Select important historic war photographs by Dmitri Baltermants, Robert Capa, Werner Bischof, Wayne Miller, and others will also be exhibited to provide a background context for the current conflicts.
Begins Friday September 7, 5 to 8 p.m.
The exhibition runs Wednesdays through Saturdays to December 1.
Please join us for a reception with some of the artists at the Gallery on Sunday September 23, 10a.m. to 1 p.m.
The reception, on September 23rd, is on the one-year anniversary weekend of the repeal of "Don't Ask/Don't Tell."
A catalogue is being published and we plan to travel the exhibition.
Proceeds from sales will benefit veterans' causes.
