The MILLS POND HOUSE GALLERY invites artists to submit works ranging from the macabre to the whimsical. The gallery is looking for works that celebrate the awesome power of art as a spiritual instrument that helps man transcend its primeval fear of death and of the unknown. The juror is not interested in works that are gratuitously gory, but is looking instead for works that have an added dimension and portray frightening subject matters in a philosophic, romantic, or humorous light.

ENTRY FEE: $15 for up to 3 entries. STAC members $10. (Artists may join at time of entry)

JUROR - ALAIN K. KHADEM is a digital artist specializing in vanitas art. This rather morbid art form marries well with the spirit of Halloween, because it often portrays skulls, snuffed candles, rotting food and other macabre objects which are designed to trigger in the viewer's mind an acute awareness of the brevity of life and the inevitability of death.

SPECIAL PRESENTATION: "The Significance of Object & Symbols in Vanitas Art" by Juror A. K. Khadem - Date to be announced.
