The Gloucester County Cultural & Heritage Commission is
searching for talented artists to participate in a project that examines the
heart wrenching cost of gun violence.
This September, at Rowan College of South Jersey’s (RCSJ)
Dr. Ross Beitzel Art Gallery, the Gloucester County Cultural & Heritage Commission
will unveil “Souls Shot: Portraits of Victims of Gun Violence.” This
compelling exhibition features portraits that celebrate survivors of gun
violence and memorialize those whose lives it has claimed. Artist and subject
are paired randomly, with survivors, family and friends providing source
material to inspire the depiction.
Artists can apply to participate in the project at SoulsShotPortraitProject.org/Get-Involved,
or by emailing SoulsShotPortraitProject@gmail.com
by Friday, Mar. 13. Prior work created on the subject may also be considered
for inclusion. All portraits must be submitted by Sept.1, and can incorporate
any style or medium. For further details or questions regarding the project,
