Bring Them Home! - a Call for Entries.

Four Oceans Press recently released a Call for Entries for the show Bring Them Home!

The Deadline to enter is October 15th, 2010, the show sates are December 1 - December 31, 2010 at Creative Framing & Gallery in Oakland.

The Idea:
July 2011 is set as the date to withdraw troops from the war in Afghanistan. This is not the first time a date has been set and will not be the last...

Regardless of what each of us may think of this or any war - there are many problems in our own nation that could be solved or at least improved by bring our troops home - failing infrastructure, slumping economy, families divided due to deployment - to name a few. Not to mention the lives lost and billions of dollars spent with little result.
What if we spent that money here? Wouldn't we be better to help other nations - who want our help - if we took care of ourselves first?

Send us your artwork related to or created around this theme. Keep an open mind. If our troops came home now: What would be the impact - on us - on the rest of the world? How might families - military and civilian - be better off? Could our nation - and the nations we are fighting in - be made whole and how?

This show is open to all artists working in any media. Check out the details of this exhibition and send us your work. 

Read all of the details and join the effort.
