Bring Out Your Dead

Gallery 360 is preparing for its first showing and you are invited to submit artwork for display.  The theme:  The Day of the Dead.  

The end of October and the beginning of November is traditionally the time to remember, honor and celebrate the dead.  Whether it's the bonfires of the Gaelic harvest festival of Samhain or the spooks and ghouls of Halloween or the sugar skulls and cemetery picnics of Mexico's Dia de los Muertos, it is a time of both reverence and fun, a party for both the living and the dead. 

What would you make to celebrate?  A shrine for a friend or relative who passed away?  A dancing skeleton, perhaps?  A portrait of the coming zombie apocalypse?  Anything dead related, from traditionally decorated calacas y calaveras to the coming zombie apocalypse are acceptable.  The only requirement is originality.

We will consider showing work that is 'not for sale,'  but we encourage folks to put a price on their work.  A portion of sales will go to the Central Arkansas Food Bank, but artists will retain 60%.   

The show opens October 13th, with a celebration on the Day of the Dead (November 1st).  The art will be up through November 11th.

Bring your creations to Gallery 360 / 900 South Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock, the earlier the better.  You can email Jay at or call him for more info.  (501) 663-2222 or (501) 993-0012.

What are you waiting for?  Get busy!
