Introducing This Month's Jones House Artists:
"VISIONS of PEACE"
SPONSORED BY THE MOUNTAIN PEACEMAKERS
The Mountain Peacemakers is a citizen-based, independent, co-rising of community members interested in Peace. Functioning as a collective since 2006, we represent many organizations, non-profits, religious denominations, and interests. Our work is to forward the goals of peace within our own homes, communities, the nation, and the globe. Our inspiration is the International Day of Peace which is celebrated globally on September 21st.
Promoting peace through visual arts, music, collaboration, and education is our intention. Methods include peace parades, teach-ins, meditations, vigils, expressive arts, poetry and discussions. We are constantly exploring how peace builds our lives and how our lives and how our lives are built by peace. WE believe the key to creating a peaceful world is to practice. The Mountain Peacemakers invite you to practice peace with us. The International Day of Peace was established by the United Nations in 1981.
Visions of Peace is a themed exhibition on the interpretation of what peace may look like. The show was open to residents of Watauga County and the surrounding counties for anyone with a vision of peace to share with the community. The exhibit was adjudicated by Adam Adcock. Adcock received an MFA in Sculpture from East Carolina University in 2007, and a BFA in Studio from Appalachian State in 2002. He is currently the Lab Operations Manager for the Art Department at ASU and lives in Banner Elk, NC.
This year’s Visions of Peace exhibit features artwork from fourteen different artists from around the Watauga Area including: Lori Hill, Treva McLain, Teresa Cerda, Irmaly Brackin, Martin Church, Tia Oaster, Ty Brown, Alistair Burke, Ron Rognstadt, Chris Baschon, Veronica Lozano-Toub, Shirley Hampton, Debbie Tallarico, and Travis Donovan.
