Studio One Eight is please to announce Art of War; a group show inspired by conflict.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — March 18, 2006 — Studio One Eight presents “Art of War” featuring work by artists Anna U. Davis, Dana Ellyn, J Coleman, Jordin Isip, Kelly Towles, Lisa Marie Thalhammer, Matt Sesow, Peter Excho, Scott G. Brooks and others. Studio One Eight’s “Art of War" will take place on Saturday March 18th, from 7-10pm.

The exhibition marks the 3-year anniversary of the war that began in the Middle East on March 20th 2003. Bringing together pieces inspired by current events surrounding this hostile engagement, the exhibition will include artwork that has little regard for the popular aesthetic of beauty. The Artists were in no way censored, and simply asked to respond to the conflict at hand. This show makes no apologies and reflects the artists’ personal, unmitigated reactions to a subject that has affected thousands of lives across our country and across the world. The result; a striking commentary on war and the current state of the Middle East. Utilizing the multiple interpretations brought to the table by this eclectic mix of artists, works range from controversial and morose, to satirical and thought provoking. The beautiful, yet (in many cases) disturbing results will undoubtedly engage and challenge viewers.

Please join us for the opening reception on Saturday, March 18th 2006 from 7-10 p.m.
