EXHIBIT: ‘Bringing the Darkness Into the Light’

October 3 @ 8:00 am - October 30 @ 8:00 pm

- Free

Full-building Exhibition

As October is the month approaching the much cherished and widely celebrated All Hallows’ Eve festival (aka Halloween), we see it fit to highlight the human fascination with all things macabre and dark in the realm of the Visual Arts. Taking a look at the darker side of art history, from Edgar Allan Poe to Francisco Goya, Francis Bacon to Damien Hirst, the exploration of the topic of death, and stories and depictions of ghosts, ghouls, demons, monsters, murder and mayhem are all aplenty. It seems only natural that artists, as ambassadors of the taboo, have taken a keen interest in the lore associated with Halloween, death, crossing over, ‘the Other Side’ and the various other supernatural subjects that are usually left unspoken, in the dark. For the month of October 2017 the Rotary Centre for the Arts will be hosting a full-building exhibition literally bringing the darkness into the light of our various exhibition spaces.

There are 19 artists represented in the show: Alice Pallett, Brazen Edwards, Mouzhan Ahmadzadegan, Judith Mueller, Allanah Weston, Lisa Hewitt, Elaine Hatch, Beverly Rein, Sarah Parsons, Wanda Lock, Maud Besson, Carney Oudendag, Angela Cyr, Angela Hansen, Jaclyn Locking, Margo Yacheshyn, Alison Beaumont, Amber Walker & Lise Guyot

*Opening Reception: Friday, October 6th 7-9pm*
