Seeking Expressions of Interest from NZ Artists.

Seeking Expressions of Interest from NZ Artists.

We are currently seeking expressions of interest from NZ Artists who are interested in an exciting opportunity to exhibit in Italy in May 15 - 29th 2010. The vision of this exhibition is to spread the message of world peace. The theme is "Peace" and "Remembrance" in memory of the fallen soldiers and civilians in Italy, particularly those involved at the Battle of Cassino where many New Zealanders fought and lost their lives during World War II.

The exhibition, hosted by the Cassino Comune, will be held in the Biblioteca Comunale Pietro Malatesta, Via Del Carmine, Cassino (FR), and the venue, promotion and invitations will be funded by the Cassino Comune. It is being co-ordinated by the NZ Art Guild and Kay de Lautour Scott, a New Zealand artist living near Cassino.

Artists Requirements
1) Artists need to have an association with the Battle of Cassino (ideally) or World War II.
2) Artists work needs to be of a professional high quality and artists will be selected based on their portfolios/artwork images presented.
3) Artists are invited to attend in person (self funded)
4) There is no charge to be involved with this exhibition but artists will need to be self funding for transport and insurance of artworks to Italy. (We are currently seeking sponsorship for shipping costs).
5) Artists and their families will be encouraged to visit the battlefields, war cemeteries and other places of interest in the area. Tours to the battlefields and museums will be arranged to suit individuals.

Assistance can be available to find appropriate accommodation in or near Cassino, and with organizing travel arrangements within the region (English is not widely spoken in the Cassino area).

Please contact Sophia Elise by 29th Jan 2010 - (Cassino as the subject) if you are interested in being involved with this fabulous project and if you require more information.
