Studio One Eight is pleased to announce the Opening Reception of ART OF WAR;

an exhibition featuring works by artists Anna U. Davis, Dana Ellyn, J. Coleman, Jordin Isip, Kelly Towles, Lisa Marie Thalhammer, Matt Sesow, Peter Excho, Scott G. Brooks and many others.

The exhibition marks the 3-year anniversary of the war that began in the Middle East on March 20th 2003. Bringing together pieces inspired by current events surrounding this hostile engagement, the exhibition will include artwork that has little regard for the popular aesthetic of beauty. The Artists were in no way censored, and simply asked to respond to the conflict at hand. This show makes no apologies and reflects the artistsŐ personal, unmitigated reactions to a subject that has affected thousands of lives across our country and across the world. The result; a striking commentary on war and the current state of the Middle East.

Utilizing the multiple interpretations brought to the table by this eclectic mix of artists, works range from controversial and morose, to satirical and thought provoking. The beautiful, yet (in many cases) disturbing results will undoubtedly engage and challenge viewers.
