HALLOWELL — The Kennebec Valley Art Association recently received a $4,200 grant from the Kay E. Dopp Fund of the Maine Community Foundation in support of It Takes a Community: Transforming Violence II, in partnership with the Family Violence Project of Augusta, according to a KVAA news release.

It Takes a Community: Transforming Violence II will take place October 2015 (Domestic Violence Awareness Month) at the Harlow Gallery, 160 Water St. Using the power of art, the exhibition will voice a collective rejection of the use of domestic violence to control and manipulate others, and will challenge society’s overall acceptance of violence. Organizers hope to raise public awareness about the continuing problem in Maine. Grant funding will support a series of workshops and other events during the exhibition, some open to the public and some meant for survivors of domestic violence.

The gallery and Family Violence Project has released an open call to Maine artists to create art for the art exhibition with a submission deadline of Aug. 15. For more information, visit harlowgallery.org.
