Time to kickstart your Halloween with some graphic designs. Auteurs of the weird and collectible Guzu Gallery launch their newest show Something Spooky, and they've sent us some preview art to get your blood up.
The eerily-inclined exhibition at Guzu (5000 N Lamar, www.guzugallery.com) curated by horror legends Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and Bernie Wrightson (Frankenstein) opens tonight, Oct. 18, with a special gala starting at 7pm.
Niles and Wrightson will be mixing with masses , but don't panic, if you can't make it this dark and stormy night. The show runs until Nov. 25 and the prints will be available via Guzu's online store, www.guzugallery.storenvy.com.
But there's plenty to bewitch the lover of darker arts at tonight's gathering. Aside from live music from Monica Richards (one half of goth duo Faith and the Muse) and electronic artist Xander Harris, and refreshments from Ballast Point brewery, there's also a haunted castle's worth of eerie art.
Joining Guzu regulars like Tim Doyle, Yehudi Mercado and Paul Hanley, there's pieces by Don't Be Afraid of the Dark director Troy Nixey, rising local horror artist Miguel Coronado III, skatepunk nightmare maker Godmachine, Niles' fellow vampire hunter Ben Templesmith and, of course, a new work from the mighty Wrightson himself.
Here's a sneak peak at some of the pieces that will be scaring the locals tonight (just don't bring any pitchforks and flaming torches):
