Halloween Exhibit

Our museum presented an art show with the theme 'Day of the Dead' in celebration of Halloween.  All ages were invited to participate and the work contributed was fabulous.  I went to the opening this evening and share the following tour with you.

One of the three pieces I entered, a plaster casting with acrylic and scrap fabric dreadlocks.

My shrouds in the background with my accordion book foreground.
The high school art class created an entire wall of fabulous paper mache masks.

Acrylic paint was finished with spar varnish which gave the masks a marvelous glittery appearance.

It impossible to pick a favorite!
The mask wall, with paper plate skulls flying above.

Samantha's excellent tea pot.

Trent's zombie couple

drawings from the elementary school

skeleton mural, also from the school kids

Robert's masks and Kim's mirrored skull wall hanging

Joe's painting hanging behind Sue's fabric and flower covered skulls

Lizzie's well-dressed skeleton

Sculpie and cardboard hangings from Mr. Sullivan's class hang next to Miss Tice's skull

I hope you had a fantastic Halloween - or last day of October if you don't have the ghoulish holiday.  See you later in the week.
