The Petaluma Arts Center presents the NeuwPolitic: Artists Explore, a juried regional competition, on display from April 4 to May 20, 2017.

Hear Me Out by Katie HaasThe exhibition will include work from 80 artists representing 12 counties in Northern and Central California and will explore the current political climate as each individual artist envisions it. Artworks include anything the artists consider relevant to their interpretation of theNeuwPolitic, abstract or representational, functional or non-functional. Over 300 artists submitted work.

Artists were asked to consider this question: “Now is the time for a much-needed dialogue surrounding politics; can art help start these conversations and facilitate the connections that are so needed?”Now is the time for a much-needed dialogue surrounding politics, and artistic expression provides us with a unique platform to share that dialogue. In times of great change and turmoil, art can provide a solace, a human connection across the time spectrum. Can art help these conversations and facilitate the connections that are so needed now?
