HALLOWELL - The Harlow Gallery in partnership with the Family Violence Project of Augusta announce a call for Maine artists to create art for an exhibition to take place at the Harlow Gallery in October entitled 'It Takes a Community: Transforming Violence II.' Submission deadline is Aug. 15 at 11 p.m.

Ten years ago, the Harlow Gallery and the Family Violence Project partnered to present 'Transforming Violence,' a collaborative, multi-voiced, educational art exhibition and workshop series responding to the problem of domestic violence in our communities. Transforming Violence took place in October of 2005 and was an important, empowering and transformative experience for those who participated. While there has been an increase in community awareness of the issue of violence in the community since then, domestic violence is still taking a terrible toll on Maine families.

'It Takes a Community: Transforming Violence II' will take place this coming October (Domestic Violence Awareness Month) at the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street in downtown Hallowell. Using the power of art, the exhibition will voice a collective rejection of the use of domestic violence to control and manipulate others and will challenge our society's overall acceptance of violence. Organizers hope to raise public awareness about the continuing problem of domestic violence in Maine.

Email submissions will be reviewed by a curatorial committee comprised of staff and volunteers from both organizations. All media welcome, including all 2D media, sculpture, photography, electronic art, installation, fine craft and more. To participate, visit and click on "artist opportunities" or
