See No Evil
As an adult, it’s easy to look back on our truly traumatic experiences as children fondly. “Oh, me,” you think. “How could I ever be so silly?” But when you’re convinced a demon from another dimension is staring at you through the cracked doors of your bedroom closet, it’s difficult to accept that one day you’ll look back on it with a hearty chortle.
As it turns out, those experiences are necessary for our transition into adulthood, where we become the official defenders and monster-checkers for the generations that follow. “Things That Go Bump in the Night: An Exhibition of Monsters and Mayhem” portrays those nightmares and nighttime visions artfully by regional artists who have a hard time forgetting their childhood haunters, from ghosts to clowns. Because, hey – you never forget the first time you were paralyzed with paranormal fear. It’s cute, really.
Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Saturdays, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Starts: Oct. 5. Continues through Nov. 3, 2012
