Add your vision to an exhibition about peace

Queenslanders are invited to share their vision of peace by contributing a landscape artwork to State Library of Queensland’s next exhibitionPeace and Quiet.

Launching in late November,Peace and Quietwill be an exhibition created in collaboration with the community. It will provide an opportunity for visitors to explore a range of projects around the broad theme of peace, from the personal to the political.

State Librarian Janette Wright encouraged all Queenslanders to channel their creativity and help complete the series of events and activities in 2015 for the Anzac centenary commemorations.

“We would like Queenslanders from all walks of life to get involved and contribute an artwork depicting a landscape image – this could be a painting, drawing, print, photograph, or even stitchery."

“By contributing an image of a landscape that reflects your personal idea of peace, you can create a powerful reminder of what is lost in war. These images of peaceful landscapes will be mounted directly over the First World War wallpaper which currently engulfs SLQ Gallery as part of the Distant Lines exhibition."

“This is a wonderful opportunity for people of all ages and backgrounds to be involved in the development of an exhibition, and have your artwork displayed in one of Australia’s premier cultural institutions,” she said.

State Library will aim to display every original artwork that is entered, providing it meets the submission terms and conditions.

Submission forms must be completed by 2 November, and all artwork must be delivered to State Library by 23 November.

Further information including the submission form and terms and conditions is available

Peace and Quiet, as part of State Library’sQ ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generationprogram, is proudly supported by the Queensland Government.
