From the New Vox Gallery Website:
This pop up art show explores our nations relationship with firearms, as well as, the political and cultural issues surrounding this relationship. Five artists examine the symbolism, fascination, and frustration inherent in this subject matter while working with this familiar imagery in a whimsical or sometimes surreal fashion. Each artist has envisioned and created unique pieces such as white ceramic pistols, stacks of golden shotgun shells made from paper coin rolls, images of children playing with water guns, reinterpreted American flags, and more.
This exhibition takes a non-bias stance seeking to engage, educate, and provoke deeper thought and reflection of the issues. The exhibition will be a seamless fusion of art and text. Installed next to each piece of art will be one of the following; firearm statistics, laws and legislations, commentary and prospectives on gun control and gun rights.
The purpose of the exhibit is to build bridges and inspire people to look at the facts on both sides of the debate, hopefully, causing them to think deeply and objectively about their own position or to form one if they haven’t already.
