sense of foreboding playfulness that often accompanies the approach
of the holiday season of Halloween was foreshadowed at The Origins
Gallery in Stroudsburg, PA as they held an Artists' Reception for
their Ghosts, Ghouls, and Girls Exhibition on Saturday October 22nd.
The Exhibition also featured the macabrely beautiful work of Painter
and Tattoo Artist Timothy Nebel. Music was provided by guitarist Ajax
Rasputin of The Leviathan Variety Show
who was joined by Harmonicist Johnny Doyle and the gallery's famous
art raffle was held.
addition to the incredible images that hung upon the gallery's wall,
there were also the work of Reverend Spooky (aka Adam Smith)
on display in curio cabinets that comprised of exquisitely sculpted
figures who captivated the imagination of those who explored the
detailed precision of the haunting entities. The large gathering of
art lovers filled the venue as their conversations mingled with the
rhythm of Mr. Rasputin's music and the sensations instilled upon them
by the art they explored. Many of the images enticed the viewer into
their otherworldly domains as each individual's desire to explore the
foreboding environs led them toward their horrific satisfactions.
that evening, the gallery's director, Jody Singer, began sharing the
numbers of the winning tickets of the venue's raffle. Each ticket
holder eyed each digit prayerfully as the coveted items were held by
Ms. Marty Carr to display its desirabilities. A series of joyous
exclamations and congratulations were shared as the items were
acquired. It was soon after this did the company begin to share their
farewells with one another as they set their sights upon the next
exhibit to greet them. You can view photographs taken during the
Artists' Reception of the exhibit in The
and Ghoulies and Girls. Oh My.
