LINES DRAWN: America's Artists Look Beyond the Politics of Red and Blue

Charles Krause/Reporting Fine Art, located 10 blocks from the White House in Washington, DC shows exclusively "the art of social and political change"---political art that is unafraid to express a point of view about contemporary social and political issues and is therefore infrequently exhibited by museums and other private art galleries in the United States. 

LINES DRAWN: America's Artists Look Beyond the Politics of Red and Blue, opens Sunday, October 12, 2014 from 3-6PM.

This landmark exhibit, timed to the November Congressional elections, will examine social, economic and political issues which artists who live in the United States view as being ignored or inadequately addressed by our government and political leaders.
I am honored to have been asked to participate in this exhibition, and for this show I have a piece titled "President Obama as Atlas Holding The Heavens."

This work was first started in 2008, and it was intended to showcase a young promising President faced with a "Yes we can" attitude soon to meet the realities of a harsh world where he was expected to continue to fill the Presidential role of supporting the heavens pf this planet's multitude of issues.

As the Presidency began to turn into disillussionment, scandals, ineptitude, professorial preaching, passing the buck, and outright deceit (in other words: just another politician), I began to continuously update the piece with broken promises, scandals, mistakes, lies, failures, etc.

The show's curators selected 61 individual works of art by 19 artists from across the country for this unusual exhibit.  I hope that you can make it to the  Opening this Sunday.  Several of the artists will be there, too.
