The Massachusetts Veterans Art Show, a statewide exhibit, will be held at Art Works Gallery, 69 Main St., Ware, in November.
Art work by veterans, active duty military, National Guard and Reserves is welcome. You can choose whether your art is for sale or not.
Organized by the Brookfield Institute, the theme of the show is “Perspectives on Military Service.” Art pieces could include expressions of any form of military service, artistic reflections about combat, women in the military or the experience of the transition home. The exhibition will run Nov. 1-30 at Art Works Gallery.
The purpose of the exhibit is twofold: to provide a space for veterans to create art to express and process their experiences and also to give the public a better understanding of military experience.
An artists reception is tentatively scheduled for 5-7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 16, at the gallery.
There will be a People’s Choice Award given out at the gallery, Friday, Nov. 28. Categories are Best in Show, Greatest Impact and possibly some others.
