Power to the People
What was originally planned as a protest art show by self-taught artists has now become a community based exhibition featuring works by both self-taught and trained artists, of all age groups, of all abilities, with works that are protest based and not.
An open “call for artists” was made public for this exhibition, Power to the People. It was intended to be an opportunity for self-taught artists to share the work they have been making in response to the world we live in today and to share their opinions about it. In looking through the work that came in, it became evident that this is an opportunity to show a huge variety of artwork by an eclectic array of talent that may or may not have shown their work before.
