PARTITION is a way to isolate, physically or emotionally.
A change of a border, separating a territory considered a homeland
by the affected community.
According to the political definition, it is done by diplomatic
means or the use of military force.In many historical instances, partitions are decided away
from the scene, by people not affected. The consequences of such
partitions have long-term consequences. Isolation, chaos, and
violence have stemmed from such partitions. This exhibition explores
partitions, their causes, and unintended consequences. The artwork
displayed depicts the feelings and frustrations of people living
isolated or under attack as the result of such partitions.
irst Friday, July 5th "Crossing Borders" by Mary
Woodworth by Mary Woodworth
The collection on view at the Missing Peace Art Gallery entitled
"Crossing Borders" comprises linoleum cut relief prints from work that I
have created over the last decade or more. Using images from
African-American and Latino experience, Shamanistic and indigenous religion,
and contemporary life I create images that viewers associate with dreams.
Individually and together they suggest narratives of suffering, liberation,
and consolation. Crossing borders suggests new ways of being, seeing, and
ways to tell the story. The diverse and common iconography is deeply
connected both to my own personal journey of struggle and understanding and
to the paths of many others and of many different communities.

is an artist from Southwest Missouri.
He had an idea to present two images in one piece
that would change as the viewing perspective changed. The first such
attempt would feature Presidents Barack Obama and Abraham Lincoln.Two originals were blended into one unique piece of art.
That piece ultimately led to the entire series he now refers to as
“One Life - A Call to Consciousness”. Sixteen originals that were
created to produce eight blended visions of social, political and
religious icons from around the globe.

"A Show Of Respect"
by artist Helen Broadfoot,
is a body of work painted for the children of war.
This exhibition is comprised of ten large oil paintings. It underscores
the violation of these children’s basic human rights. Each painting
depicts a child from a different country and chronicles ways that war
effects children. Children die, children are forced to become soldiers,
children are captured and sold into brothels and children are displaced
and spend their young lives (often their whole lives) as refugees.
A major component of each piece is the
inclusion of one of the articles of "The Universal Declaration Of Human
These articles are painted on the canvas in the language of the child
depicted in the painting.
Beside each painting in the exhibit is the translation of the article
into English as well as the inspiration for the painting itself.

Drawing Paradise on the Axis of Evil "PRE-WAR ART" by UK Artist Emily Johns
"The “war artist” documents the process of war, and
comments on the aftermath of war.
This project is “pre-war art” - an equivalent process for a conflict that I hope
may never take place.
It deals with the themes that a war artist might deal with, but in a period of
tension rather than after the outbreak of hostilities.
My approach has been from the perspective of British relations with
and the intertwining of histories.

2009 Max Ginsburg
His work is suffused with the energy of the city and
it’s people: its vendors, its protestors, its athletes, and musicians. The power
of his work stems from both his belief in the immediacy of a shared, realistic
viewpoint and his strong belief in humanism. His work explores issues of class,
race, and gender and in recent years has gone on to examine more subtle
relationships within society, such as the way we care for our elderly, our
young, and in the wake of 9/11, notions of patriotism.
