Freaky studio in Pittsburgh plans art show
The one, above, decorates their lunchroom at Specter Studios in Pittsburgh's Sharpburg section.
Theirs will be unveiled Oct. 29 at a gallery show, Flesh & Bone, at Modern Formations, 4919 Penn Ave. The artists are Mike Doran, Chucky Hendershot, China Horrell, Dan Marsico and Michael Pezzulo.
Today, I took the dare to step inside the studio designed to keep local artists in Pittsburgh, and fortunately got out alive.
It's a warehouse kind of place where everything sold is handmade and creativity is the key word. A freaky-looking creature hangs from a noose in the stairway to the clothing shop. A frightening (secret) mask in development for the 2011 Halloween season would scare the hell out of the devil.
So take in this upcoming gallery show from 7 to 10:30 p.m. at your own risk.
