It's Close To Midnight And Something Evil's Lurking In The Dark
Under The Moonlight You See A Sight That Almost Stops Your Heart
You Try To Scream But Terror Takes The Sound Before You Make It
You Start To Freeze As Horror Looks You Right Between The Eyes,
You're Paralyzed

You Hear The Door Slam And Realize There's Nowhere Left To Run
You Feel The Cold Hand And Wonder If You'll Ever See The Sun
You Close Your Eyes And Hope That This Is Just
Imagination
But All The While You Hear The Creature Creepin' Up
Behind
You're Out Of Time

Night Creatures Call
And The Dead Start To Walk In Their Masquerade
There's No Escapin' The Jaws Of The Alien This Time

This Is The End Of Your Life

They're Out To Get You, There's Demons Closing In On Every Side
They Will Possess You Unless You Change The Number On Your Dial
Now Is The Time For You And I To Cuddle Close Together...

..GOSH, .I do hope everyones O.K.!!!

It sounds like our way cool curator himself, Mr. Scott Lawrimore, is channeling some 'old timey' horror film macabre up at the old haunted Frye mansion on the hill these days.
i sure hope he's dressed up as Mr.Vincent Price himself, candelabra in tow, black curtains and all-Just perfect for Halloween!
Did yo know Vincent Price was an art collector, curator, and dealer too? ...just sayin'

I was there last week. It's definitely worth checking out. The backdrop of the paintings is perfect.

didn't the frye have some rule where everything exhibited had to be figurative paintings? and it was kind of old and stuffy as a result? what happened?

Wow. What a piece of writing. I'm heartsick that I missed this show. Thanks, Jen, for your talent. And congrats on being a Pulitzer finalist. There's no doubt about why you received such recognition.
