‘I.M.A.G.I.N.E. Peace Now’

This is certainly a different way to look at guns. “I.M.A.G.I.N.E. Peace Now” (Innovative Merger of Art & Guns to Inspire New Expressions) is an anti-gun violence exhibition, with over 100 artists creating innovative ways to look at firearms. The traveling show was organized by metalsmith Boris Bally from Rhode Island. He uses decommissioned guns in his art and asked other artists to do the same. The exhibition’s opening reception at KCAAH is on Jan. 20 at 6 p.m. ArtSeed Gallery, 1931 E. Spring St. , New Albany, also has work from the show, with an opening at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 26.
