GALA Dark Arts Oct. 3 – Nov. 4, 2019

GALA is presenting their show, Dark Arts from October 3 until November 4, 2019. This exhibit is based on a Dark Art or Halloween theme. The show’s planners were inspired by the Arts After Hours production of Carrie The Musical based on the book by Stephen King.

I have two entries in this show. Nevermore is a mixed media piece showing a stylized raven sitting on an autumn tree limb. It was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe’s poem, The Raven. The artwork has a mottled metallic background on which I painted tree branches using acrylic paint. The raven and colorful fall leaves are collaged with various types of paper. It is 20″ x 24″ framed. The second entry is Nocturne, a 10″ x 20″ acrylic painting on 1-1/2″ deep gallery wrapped canvas. It shows a wolf howling at a full moon. This painting was inspired by a family of coyotes living near my house!

The opening reception for Dark Arts will be held on Friday, October 4 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. A $5 donation is requested. GALA is located at 25 Exchange Street, Lynn, MA. Please go to galleriesatlynnarts.org for more information.
