Trumpet Fine Arts Gallery will host a special exhibit of portraits of “Silence Breakers,” a mere few of the women and men who have broken the silence surrounding sexual abuse harassment.

This exhibit will be ongoing and added to as more people speak up and out on this crucial issue.

“We Are Not Prey: #MeToo” is a unique event, as the artist, Campbell Harvey, invites the public to participate by adding their story to this important and growing movement.

“I have been on the front lines of fighting the ‘rape culture’ since the first sexual assault I experienced when I was in college. The year was 1966. Finally, the silence is being broken,” Harvey said in a statement. “I will be adding to these portraits as I am committed to the #MeToo movement for the sake of our children and their children.”

Trumpet Gallery, 8 Grove St., Peterborough, showcases all mediums including mixed-media, kinetic sculpture, charcoal, oil painting, watercolours, etchings, photography and collage. For more information, visit trumpetgallery.com or contact Mona Adisa Brooks at 801-4502 or monaadisabrooks@gmail.com.
