Prostitution is said to be the oldest profession in the world. The reality is that prostitution is the oldest ongoing abuse. Unmade Bed is an exhibit of visual art that tackles the heart response to the sex slave trade. We hold in our hands and hearts the ability to stop this inhumane practice. Participating artists from western Washington invite the public to come respond to this powerful topic and exhibit.

The art ranges from photography to encaustic to video to fiber by artists: Debra Calkins, Christina Fairley-Erickson, Jan Fisher, Julie Gautier-Downs, Mary Hilkey, Barbara Matthews, Marie Plakos, Diane Reardon, and Cheryl Weisz. This exhibit will be at the Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, located at 565 Camano Ave, Langley, WA. The exhibit opening will be on October 7, 4:00pm – 7:30pm. The exhibit will extend to October 8 , 1:00pm – 7:30pm; and October 9, 12:30pm – 2:00pm.
