Trigger Warning – call for art dealing with gun violence in America

Trigger Warning – call for art dealing with gun violence in America

This Deadline Expired: Saturday, February 29, 2020

Trigger Warning
Exhibition dates: May 1 – June 6, 2020
Sweetwater Center for the Arts Gallery, Sewickley, PA.

Gun violence is an epidemic and a public health crisis, yet as a country we cannot agree on any solutions. As we debate, more guns are made, sold and used, and people continue to perish. The emotional toll on our society is strong and finds its way into the works of artists trying to grapple with the issues surrounding gun violence. Trigger Warning seeks works from artists that tackle the complex relationship America has with its guns and the destruction left in its wake.

My work can be traced back to my own personal history and experiences, yet rather than being personal symbols, it is a product of a collective memory that I share with the viewer.

Andrea Caldarise is a painter and collaborator inspired by exploring memories and happenstance conversations. Public spaces are visceral, storied environments—her art practice explores the psychological connection between landscapes and people. Each painting invokes a singular place, inspired by referencing the emotions, sights, and textures of an experience. Caldarise’s art focuses on connecting audiences with cityscapes and common, shared spaces within by capturing the experience of discovery, recreating a place through memories and imagination. Her work borders on magical realism, borrowing from observations, historical research, and surreal themes, Caldarise's artwork reveals the commonplace and extraordinary narratives in our environment.
