* Three-dimensional works that need to be hung will be considered on weight. Free standing work will be accepted as long as pedestals and floor space are available
* All appropriate work will be displayed as space permits. Works deemed by the curator to be inappropriate for a public space due to nudity or graphically violent content may not be displayed.

WHERE: Gavilan College at the Briggs Building, 365 Fourth St. Hollister, Ca. 95023

WHY: Curator Mark Fisher said: "Two-thousand United States military personnel have died in Iraq since the war began in March 2003. Not since the Vietnam War has the involvement of our military in a foreign land evoked the controversy of committing the lives of our loved ones to a political cause. Artists have the ability to create a unique forum to discuss the political views of our time. Here is a chance to express your vision of war and the political conflict raging in the Middle East." Fisher is a sculptor and painter who lives in Hollister. He has taught art at San Benito High School, and drawn editorial cartoons for Pinnacle Newspapers.
