What's On: Visual Arts “Pictures of Peace” Exhibit
"Pictures of Peace" Exhibit
Reception: 6-9pm, Saturday, February 20, 2010

On February 20th, an exciting exhibit is opening in Toronto in the legendary Show Gallery at 978 Queen St. West, from 6-9 pm, entitled "Pictures of Peace". As the name suggests the theme of the exhibit is Peace, an issue as vital to the world today as never before, with the wars and struggles overshadowing human relations, it is inspiring to see artists join together for a cause to aid the planet. All the proceeds from sales of work will go to a Peace organization “The Canadian Peace Alliance”. It is an effort to promote harmonious coexistence, and mutual understanding among people.
The gifted artists participating in the exhibit were inspired to create paintings, jewellery designs, and pieces of art to bring a profound message of global cooperation, unity and respite from war. Perhaps exhibits such as this will influence more people to address the need for a just and caring environment on our only home of earth.
The organizer of the exhibit, Amber Pulleyblank, is an artist working at Inspirations Studio; she wanted to show peace and peace of mind and believes the world would be a more peaceful place if people found inner peace and happiness. This is truly what is important - to find a personal sense of comfort and fulfillment for respecting relations, compassion and humane interaction.
Everyone is invited to attend this extraordinary exhibit dedicated to peace.
