Preview: Chet Zar Tonight

Chet Zar, showing tonight October 10th at Roq la Rue, is known for his film concept design work (including the recent Hellboy 2) but when he had free time he paints monster-like characters who seem to inhabit a film noir type world. His characters can appear ruthless and slightly maleficent or gruesome yet sympathetic.

As a salute to the longer, colder hours of fall and the Halloween season, Roq la Rue is exhibiting painters Dan Quintana, Jeremy Bennett and Chet Zar – three painters who work with “dark imagery.”
