The Halloween mood set in sometime last November for lots of us. But Pulaski Technical College’s Center for the Humanities and the Arts is adding a soothing artistic touch to the scary season with its “Boo! Images of the Macabre,” a show coming from “the darkest corners of the vault of the Kalamazoo Institute of Arts,” the school has announced.
The exhibition includes a creepy skull etching by Luis Jimenez, whose sculpture “Vaquero” is on the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; an eyeball photograph by Nathan Lerner; a stunning engraving of a devil and God by Clare Leighton; a beautiful ink on paper of a spider by Rudy Pozzatti; and other haunting pictures. Inured as we are to horrors, thanks to the current administration in D.C., still this show should provide a spooky frisson.
The show runs through Dec. 15 in CHARTS’ Windgate Gallery. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
