On exhibit will be artwork that has been inspired by Halloween whether it be ghoulish, gross or somewhat gruesome.“The works in this show capture the true spirit of Halloween, whether it be playful, psychological or physical, the spectator soon realizes the power of the Imagination is the scariest of all.” said Juror Michelle Carollo describing the students work.
In its 4th year “the inspiration for Nightmare on Main Street came from the dramatic holiday Windows at Macy’s in New York City. We wanted to take advantage of the beautiful windows that frame the gallery at the Huntington Arts Council and turn the actual windows into a work of dramatic art. Once inside the gallery, visitors would find that even the gallery floors and walls had been treated with similar flair. We chose Halloween because the many possible interpretations of the season would give our young participating artists the most choices in creating their works.” said Andrea Maire immediate past president of the Huntington Arts Council.
