As Halloween approaches, Copro Gallery is gearing up for their “Roadside Attractions” group show, a dark art extravaganza guest curated by film and video game composer Cris Velasco. Subtitled “A collection of oddities,” the exhibition features works in a variety of media. Some pieces revel gleefully in the idea of evil, like Clifton Harvey and Matt Dangler’s paintings, while others present insidious-looking, haunting specters (as in the case of Laurie Lee Brom and Chris Mars). The exhibition opens on October 18 alongside Chet Zar’s solo show, “All Hallow’s Eve.” Following the opening, viewers will have the chance to fully immerse themselves in the shows’ macabre themes at the gallery’s Halloween costume party. Take a look at our preview of “Roadside Attractions” below.
