At the reception, both silent and live auctions will feature artwork made from decommissioned firearms by faculty and students of SFCC’s Art Department. These works will be accompied by others reflecting on gun violence prevention by artists and jewelers from across the United States. Proceeds from the event will benefit the participating artists, NMPGV and the form & concept gallery. The Guns to Art Benefit Show will be on exhibit from November 7th to 17th, 2017.  A reception and live auction will be held on Friday, November 17th, 2017 from 4-7 pm. Both an online and in-gallery silent auction featuring a selection of the works will run for the duration of the exhibition, and end on the evening of the reception.

Artists are asked to provide a high resolution image of each work.

Submission deadline for this exhibit is October 9th, after which a jury selected by form & concept will choose the works and notify the artists by October 20th.
