The press release follows:
Roq La Rue Gallery
” The Blab Show “
a group show curated by Monte Beauchamp
Opens Friday August 12th 6-9pm!
Roq La Rue is pleased to present a group show curated by the illustrious Monte Beauchamp of Blab! Magazine fame. Monte is bringing us a dynamic and fun exhibition featuring a varied assortment of artists and illustrators, whose work all around the theme of Krampus. Who is Krampus? In Alpine tradition, Krampus is a creepy devil figure who accompanies St Nicolas during the holidays…if you are good, St. Nick gives you presents, but if you’re bad then you might wind up in Krampus’ sack and beaten with a switch! Krampus has become an object of counterculture curiosity and this show reflects both the scaryness as well as the wonderful camp factor of Krampus. But wait- why are we having a show based on a Christmas demon in August? All we can say is Roq La Rue didnt get where we are today by following the rules! So pop on some devil horns and join us for a festive opening on August 12th at the gallery!
Please contact us to be placed on an email preview.
