I was asked to be a part of the Dark Art 3 exhibit in Ft. Myers this year. Here is the piece I sent down for the show and some pictures of the gallery opening courtesy of my friend Chris Parks.
For the third consecutive year the Dark Art Exhibit will descend upon Fort Myers to bring shivers, chills and artistic awe to the fabulously elegant Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center.
Opening on Oct. 2 and running through Oct. 17, Dark Art 3 takes its previous incarnations to a supernatural and international level, organizers said. This year, event hostess Janet 'Planit' DeMarco, along with sponsor Terry Tincher of Space 39 Gallery, has engaged the talents of Curse Mackey to act as guest curator for Dark Art 3. Mackey, a well-known industrial music rockstar and art curator who lives in Tampa, has produced exhibits from LA to NYC to London and Japan.
Sure to be a frightful delight for patrons of the Fort Myers Friday Art Walk, Dark Art 3 will present works by international artists such as famed horror writer/ film maker Clive Barker, shock-rocker Marilyn Manson, Academy-award winning Swiss Surrealist HR Giger, Goth music legend/comic book artist Voltaire, David Stoupakis, Erik Foss of Fuse Gallery NYC, world-famous tattoo artist Bob Tyrrell, MTV award-winning video director Dean Karr, and Chester Bennington, lead singer of multi-platinum rock band Linkin Park.
