pieces are also acceptable. Tanner promises that she will not censor anyone,
but asks that any violent images in a piece be kept to a respectable level.

ready to hang (meaning framed), excluding canvas pieces that are properly
stretched for display. Media is also welcome, including written and 3-D works.

Deadline is March 6th.

Peace is asking a $30 hanging fee, which is due prior to the work’s hanging. The
fee will help cover the building expenses and utilities. As for the breakdown
of numbers – 40 percent commission will be collected on the sales of artwork;
20 percent will be given to the gallery (the hanging fee may be deducted from
this); 20 percent will be given to the WNY Peace Center; leaving 20 percent for
the artist of the work.

people are more likely to attend and purchase if the proceeds are going to a
worthy cause.

throughout the duration of the exhibit.
