The show is sponsored by Texas Moratorium Network.
The exhibit first ran May 6-22, 2006 in Austin's Gallery Lombardi. It will be in Houston February 10-18 at Gallery M2.
There are 55 pieces in the show, selected by three jurors: Annette Carlozzi, senior curator at the Jack S. Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, Lora Reynolds of the Lora Reynolds Gallery in Austin, and Malaquias Montoya, an artist and professor of art at the University of California, Davis.
The works on exhibition were selected from more than 700 submissions from more than 300 artists from 19 countries. The show includes artists from Texas, as well as other U.S. states and Canada, France, Germany and The Netherlands. The exhibit contains mostly work by professional artists, but it also includes 13 works from people currently on Texas death row. The exhibit includes paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, videos and installation art.
We are organizing this international, all-media, juried art show to foster the creation of new artwork on the death penalty and to encourage and enhance civic engagement and dialogue about the death penalty.
Please help us bring the art show to Houston by making a donation. We need to raise another $250 to cover all the expenses associated with bringing the exhibit to Houston. Also, if you have any food or drinks to donate to the opening night reception, please let us know.
