The Silence Is Over – Call For Artists
Infuse Gallery announces a call for artists for The Silence is Over: : A Journey of Empowerment from Survivors of Sexual Abuses.
Deadline: 1 Mar 2017
The Silence Is Over is an invitation to join a global community of artists that are ending the silence and shame around our stories of sexual trauma and, instead, are offering them as an opportunity and celebration of empowerment. It is a call to the rest of the world to set a higher standard and end these atrocities. We live in a divided time where fear and intimidation are rampant. By telling our stories we are letting go of fear, honoring our pain we have endured, and celebrating our return to empowerment and wholeness. We are inviting others to join us in this next stage of calling forward a better, unified world that is free from abuse.
Artists will be part of a permanent virtual exhibition on the Infuse Gallery website and several will be selected for a physical exhibition in Summer of 2017. Sales from this exhibition will benefit the artists and two nonprofit organizations: PAVE (Promoting Awareness, Victim Empowerment) which offers awareness campaigns and support programs to survivors of sexual assault and Blossomy which works with survivors of human trafficking in India. Each artist’s story is an opportunity to help these organizations and other survivors like them as a means of uniting, empowering, and fund-raising through sales of the art in this exhibit.
About Infuse Gallery
Infuse Gallery mission is to use art as a vehicle for global change. We have partnered with several nonprofits. For each piece of art sold, a percentage of the sale is donated directly back to them. We represent artists with world-wide success while also providing a platform to those served through the nonprofits to sell their art in the gallery. This gives them creative and financial empowerment and an opportunity to give back to those who helped them.
We showcase some of the world’s best artistic talent. Every artist in Infuse Gallery selects one of our partner nonprofits for which to donate. They select the percentage from their portion of the sale and Infuse Gallery matches the contribution.
Whether you buy a painting from a school girl in Afghanistan, man living under a bridge in Denver, or career artist who has shown their work in galleries and museums internationally, you can buy this art knowing your purchase has changed a life for the better and helped a charity grow.
