|I didn't write this press release... just showing a bunch of pieces!
Maybe some of you in San Francisco can brave the hipster crowds for some cheap beer.
VON DOOM opening show Thursday! $5 endless beer!!!
Opening reception: Thursday, October 1st. 6-9 pm
Closing reception: Saturday, October 31st, Halloween Party! 6-9 pm
"Von Doom" is a celebration of heavy-metal inspired art with a focus on image-makers of the current metal scene. This exhibition, on display during October, brings together a variety of artists hailing from places as far away as the U.K. and Australia.
The collection in the front room gallery will focus on drawings and prints in various degrees of brutality, un-holiness and gore. Much of the art on display can be found again as album art, tour posters and t-shirts.
The backroom will harbor a large-scale installation conceived and created by two San Francisco local metal headz.
Inspired by San Francisco's own "Hell-o-ween" Black Metal Festival, this show is an ode to the music that spawns cross eyed goat heads, summons the apocalypse and paints itself in corpse paint. Nothing is sacred - all is doom.
