Header "Darkness Falls"

Regarding the theme:

"Dark Art" :

Art that is Unnatural, Unsettling, Gothic, Spooky, Monstrous, Disturbing or Metaphysical in nature.

While not necessarily Horrific (and often humorous) , Dark Art challenges us to unleash, uncover, redefine or even shed light on those things that linger in the shadows, under beds and in the corners of our hearts.

Those ghostly (Or ghastly?) visions from our nightmares, dreams, storied pasts, & popular culture taking corporeal form in beautiful works of art.

See you on Sept 6th!
