DESCRIPTION

We open The Macabre Show, which is an eight person feature exhibition of museum calibre (and museum exhibited) artists whose milieu tends toward Dark. Of course the joy of a curated theme exhibition in October is tackling the preconceptions that the season brings with it. Autumn is heralded by an Equinox, and the works of Myron Conan Dyal ("Rivaled only by Richard Serra in the contest for best living sculptor."), Gail Potocki, and Mavis Leahy channel the changes of nature within that context. Craig LaRotonda, Steven Daily, Jasmine Worth, and Scott Holloway take a Gothic, somewhat Corinthian approach to subjects of life, death, race, and creed. Miso funnels the high concepts of birth and defect dichotomies into an adorably minimalist proposition some may find most disturbing of all.
