All Hallow Even:

A group exhibit featuring Distillery artists as they investigate traditional and non-traditional notions of Halloween and the imagery associated with the eve of "All Saints' Day."

The exhibit will coincide with South Boston Open Studios and will be on display for the event weekend, November 1st and 2nd. In addition, a costume party opening reception will be held on Halloween night, Friday, October 31st, from 9pm - midnight. The gallery will be appropriately haunted for the occasion and music will be provided by the notorious DJ Ning Nong. Make-up artists will be available to decorate any non-costumed faces that manifest throughout the evening.

Along with the Halloween-themed works will be an encore presentation of the giant multi-artist wall mural which was produced for the previous exhibit, "Paint it Now." Contributors to the wall will return before the show opens to add to, subtract from, and modify aspects of the enormous black-on-white piece. A darker, devilish, and more evil collaboration will result.

The Distillery Gallery is located at 516 East Second St., first floor, and is free and open to the public from 9am - 5pm, Monday through Saturday.
