Float, the East Bay’s only therapeutic floating center, which is also a venue for up-and-coming painters, photographers, mixed-media artists and sculptors, is seeking artists and war poets for its Human Remains exhibit, which will open on Sept. 11. The gallery needs artwork influenced by the Iraq war for this one-of-a-kind show. All media types are encouraged to submit work by Aug. 11.

 

Owner Allison Walton, who opened the gallery in 2006 in a roomy live-work loft in the Cotton Mill Studios, a former cotton mill under the freeway on the Oakland-Alameda border, said “regardless of whether you are pro-war or anti-war, you can’t help but feel the emotional impact of the artists’ work. During the opening party we will assault the eye and surround the viewer with mixed media and poetry.”
