Halloween may be a few weeks away, but this gallery exhibition should get you in the mood for the spooky season. “Gods and Monsters 7” will showcase the work of over 70 artists, and features pieces inspired by the darker side of life (and death). Think iconic movie monsters, urban-legend-fueled memes, and even some recent pop-culture terrors. Ancient creatures (Baphomet, sphinx), old standbys (the clown from IT), and even some modern heroines (11 from Stranger Things) make appearances. At Saturday’s party, guests will be able to freak themselves out while scoring henna tattoos and enjoying live music from Night Corvettes and Trans Manic. The opening reception runs from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday, October 8. Private viewings only after opening reception. Contact [email protected] to schedule a viewing.
