Art of Nonviolence

Art of Nonviolence
May 1 - July 6, 2015
Location: Encore Gallery at the Taos Community Auditorium

Opening Reception May 1 from 4-6pm

The Taos Center for the Arts is proud to partner with NonviolenceWorks in presenting the "Art of Nonviolence".The exhibition is just one of the ways that Taos students have been given a voice. With the theme of nonviolence, the students explore and utilize art as a means to express, process, and convey their feeling toward the social and personal effects of violence and why nonviolence works. The exhibition is a celebration of our youth, a voice for our youth, and a showcase of their creativity.

Between 40 to 50 juried works from six schools, grades 5 through 12 will be exhibited in the Encore Gallery of the Taos Community Auditorium from May 1 to July 6. This fourth competition for youth in Taos County requires that young people think positively about how nonviolence can be celebrated and expressed in a visual art piece. The goals are to challenge youth to express and process difficult personal and social issues in positive and nonviolent images. Youth are encouraged to reach out to families and the community to recognize that the art of nonviolence is about the art of living—the choices we make to support those nonviolent expressions of deep meaning in productive ways.

The Art of Nonviolence Coordinator, Michael Martinez states that art teachers and classroom teachers have engaged their students to think about nonviolence in their lives. They worked with them to show (by visual means) that nonviolence can be a positive aspect for them moving forward. The pieces reflect those thoughts and ideas…and hopefully will stay with them for the rest of their lives.

During the Opening Reception on May 1 from 4 to 6 p.m.—the juried art will be displayed and the young artists will make statements about the meaning of their work to the attendees. Musicians Michelle Stanley and YorikoMorita will provide background music to emphasize the vitality of these artists.

These events are planned for TCA’s various venues: the auditorium, Encore Gallery, and Stables Gallery. Most events, but not all, are sponsored by TCA. Submit your TCA event here.
