WANT TO DO SOMETHING TO EXPRESS YOUR OUTRAGE?????????
EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST
Please think about an international internet, online art/poetry exhibition
where we all send in images protesting about the carnage and stupidity of
all that has to do with terrorism...what do you think?
If you would like to send an international visual protest by doing the above
please send me your email messages to fez@... and I will take it
from there. I can advertise it in Australia as well as on the net (my
husband can start a web page) and if we get as many artists as we can doing
this and advertising it to all the art sites and friends they can think of -
what a wonderful, visually powerful thing it will be...
let me know and I will reply in due course.
