The Underground Gallery at the Art Center is devoted to the freedom of artistic expression. A showcase of Avant-garde artwork, The Underground Gallery seeks the cutting edge of imagination in all forms of art; music, traditional, poetry, prose, theatre, & experimental.
Horror is the oldest form of artistic expression. It’s the first stories told around campfires, in books, myths, film, theatre, and art. Examples of horror art are found in museums, literature is founded on horror motifs, and remains the most popular form of entertainment.
The Art of Horror endeavors to explore the darker side of art. All media are accepted. As a horror theme show, some mature content is to be expected. The Horror genre is a wide field open to many forms including Gothic, Lovecraftian, dark fantasy, and steampunk.
This year, The Art of Horror is having a sub-theme, Steampunk Horror. As a sub-theme, artists aren’t required to enter anything related to it. Judging will include all art equally.
Special Notice! -- We are planning to have a Costume Gala opening night October 15th. People are encouraged to wear a costume! There will be live music that evening as well!
