Curator/Owner Christine Murphy has put together this show not only as a nod to Halloween (Oct.31), All Saints Day(Nov.2), and All Souls Day(Nov. 2), but as celebration of life, by honoring the beauty, mystery, and seductive quality that can be found in the macabre.  Artists showing will include George Morales of 1st Class Tattoo here in Long Branch, Nicholas Penta of DeadSeagull Art & Apparel, Dan Castellano of Tattoo Nation, Dylan Wise resident SICA artist, and Reverend Chris Murphy.  The art will be on display through November 2nd and can be viewed after the reception by appointment only.
