Halloween art making PV return

emann@pvdemocrat.com — Although the art world has no shortage of individuals who can think outside of the norm, for one show returning to Pauls Valley, abnormal displays are only the beginning.

Getting spooky all over again will be the name of the game as the Halloween Art and Glow Show makes it’s second appearance later this month at the PV Arts and Cultural Center downtown, according to Mike Dyson, arts council president. The time is now to get started on entries just right for the ghoulish season and have them ready by Monday, Oct. 22.

“It’s great having artwork of a spooky nature,” said Dyson, who serves as his own example of a non-artist person who can participate when he created his man art show last year.

Open to any possible medium from clay sculptures to photography, the theme will be similar to last year where there will be a main larger display area and a room with only black lights for artwork that glows in the dark, said Dyson. He noted how the latter actually makes this show stand out from others and proved rather popular for visitors last time around.

“It’s something that’s not done with a lot of art shows,” said Dyson, who witnessed entries like neon paintings that grabbed attention. “Something that’s not done in this area.”

Everything will kick off with the opening night festivities Friday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. where people can mingle and view without charge, continuing until about 10 p.m., said Dyson. People are encouraged to come dressed up as their favorite holiday inspired character and enjoy the music, drinks and eats.

That only being the beginning, the fun continues Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., which will be followed by Main Street’s own Living Dead Center events like the Undead Fashion Show as well as the Zombie Prom and Monster Ball, said Dyson. The last day of the art show will be held during Boo on the Bricks, Monday, Oct. 31 and will end when kids are done dropping by for candy.

“We’ll have kind of an art party atmosphere,” said Dyson.

The deadline for entries lasts from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 22 and the cost to enter is $15 for the first three entries and $5 for each additional with no limit on how many one can enter. The Arts & Cultural Center is located at the corner of Paul and Walnut.
