The Huntington Arts Council invited students to submit work that was inspired by the story telling narrative of Halloween. Horror films, legends and comics surrounding Halloween allow people to embrace a side of themselves that is considered dark and strange. Prizes valued at $75 each and will be awarded in two categories: Senior Division (grades 9-12) and Junior division (grades 6-8) during the Costume Party Reception on October 27. “I found everything to be done with great spirit and effort on everyone’s part. I was looking for a combination of skill, imagination, originality and passion put into the work.” Juror, Jason Stuart said of his selections for the exhibit.
Executive Director, Marc Courtade added,“We are excited to once again present Nightmare on Main Street Student Art Exhibit. This show is now in its 6th year and as popular as ever. The scope of talent is remarkable and we hope to see a lot of the students at our costume reception in our gallery on Friday, October 27, 6-8pm. It always a fun night! Please make sure to stop by our gallery and celebrate Halloween with us!”
