Call For Art Noir in the Dallas Fort Worth Area for local art show "Walpurgisnacht" May 2 &3 2014

Reposted with permission:

Any artists in the DFW area that want their work seen?
I need some help! Actually I need some Dark Art! 
I don't usually ask for help but today I'm reaching out.
Guests will exit the next show into an art exhibit much like the old "Night Gallery TV show! Dark Art everywhere! This is where I need some help. I need local artists in the Plano / Dallas area to come display and possibly sell some dark art. It can be paintings, sculpture, mixed media, displays, all kinds of unusual noir.
Our next event at Dark Hour Haunted House in Plano TX, is first weekend in May. Called "Walpurgisnacht" which is the halfway point to Halloween! This is unlike anything we (or anyone else) has done before.
I'm obviously very excited about it! Time is running short, so if you are interested in displaying some of your dark artwork here with us please read on in the comments. I have an introduction letter there that has all the details.

Feel free to write or call me anytime with any questions you may have and thank you in advance. I believe this will grow into it's own event in time. How cool is that!! Who doesn't want to go to the Night Gallery! or Gallery Nacht!

Apology For My Absence Fromm Bloggerland

Sorry.  Life has been a major distraction lately.

I love art, music, theater, and Steampunk, as well as many other forms of counterculture artistic expression, but I have simply been too overwhelmed trying to make a living and maintain other obligations lately to blog or post much.  I haven't even looked at facebook more than once a week lately.

We have been very involved though in a great number of interesting things, and I will make time to write, at least more briefly, (I tend to wax poetic at times) about them.  To quote some of my favorite Steampunk performers, the Absinthe Minded Professors:  "A proper Victorian Gentleman is perfectly aware that there is no good reason to use only one word will 27 words will do as well."

Social Implications of Fashion in the Modern World

Actually, I study and practice many different spiritual paths, but in my favorite path, to which I am most devoted, the most traditional attire for priest or priestess, participant, or even attendee, is to wear nothing but a smile... aside form decorative jewelry of course. I wonder how the Southern Baptists would react to that attire on Easter Sunday? Would God care. Not really, but Humans care very much. That is why I often take into consideration how others view my attire as a reflection of my attitudes towards others, towards myself, towards what is sacred to them, and of my upbringing regarding causing offense needlessly. Of course as a counterculture type, I often intentionally dress radically different from mainstream, but prefer to awaken the mind of those not yet totally brain dead with charm, grace, and glamour rather than attempting to shock them into a higher state of awareness. It is usually much more effective and produces a much more artistic and desirable result.
