ALL HALLOWS Art Show at Whino. This spirited exhibit will launch with a complimentary reception, which is open to the public, on Thursday, October 14, from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. The group art show will be featured at WHINO through November 10th.

ALL HALLOWS is a group art show, featuring local, national, and international works by artists looking at traditions which originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or the "darker-half" of the year.  What was once developed by believers to ward off ghosts, by lighting bonfires and wearing costumes, has had numerous forms of expression across many cultures. The rituals vary in scope, from remembering the dead, including pagan traditions, saints (hallows), martyrs, and departed loved ones. There is a vast history giving the artists represented in this unique show plenty of inspiration. Each of their artistic creations will encompass their interpretation of this ancient tradition.

Works of art in this show will range in price from $800 to $2,000 and local artists will attend the reception to meet guests and share information about their work. Artists with works on display include the following: Briana Hertzog of Northern Virginia; Marly McFly of Newport News, VA; MasPaz of Arlington, VA, Mike Pacheco of Washington, D.C, and Rodrigo Pradel of Leesburg, VA. From further afield, are original works in this show by Jose Mertz of California; Richard Salcido of California; Yuhmi Collective of Florida, and Natalia Rak from Poland.
