As part of the sixth annual V-Day Petaluma campaign to raise awareness and end violence against women and girls, we are encourging local artists to enter 2-D art that is a positive expression of women; their resilency, their sensuality; an expression of what the V-Day movement means to them; why they are RISING; or artwork relating to women’s empowerment and prevention of violence against women and girls. Artists are encouraged to visit the V-Day or V-Day Petaluma, for an understanding of the movement.  V-Day Petaluma is hosted by Guided To Safety.

To promote the campaign we will be staging entries at Worthy Of Love Furnishings from  February 1 through March 2.
