If you like the combination of Star Wars and horror, and happen to live in the Baltimore metro area, then an upcoming art exhibition (with the aforementioned theme) at Charmed Life Studio might be the perfect way to spend a Friday evening. Parents beware that this event looks to be more geared towards elder Jedi Masters rather than Padawans. Check out the press release and then follow the links to more info. I plan on attending the event and will be sure to provide coverage afterwards.
DEATHSTAR “Star Wars V. Horror” Opening October 7th 6:00PM to 10:00PM
Artists from all over the Baltimore area have been sharpening their lightsabers in the abandoned barn behind Camp Crystal Lake. Children on Elm Street have been running away from a Wookie in their dreams; they say if he catches you, you wake up with your arms torn off. There’s this hologram on an old R2 unit, anyone who watches it dies in seven days. All of this portends one thing, shambling from its stygian depths, over the Mountains of Madness, the DEATHSTAR rises.
Charmed Life Studio is doing the mash, we’re doing monster mash-up. Darl Gnau and Nick “Ghostfreehood” Borkowicz have invited more than two dozen visual artists to combine Star Wars and horror. If you like art, if you like horror, if you like Star Wars, you should be there. October 7th, from 6:00 PM till 10:00 PM. There will also be music from Star Wars interpreted by Ben Frock’s Love Unit. This event is free, BYOB and open to all ages. Parents be warned, there might be images that will frighten young children.
This event will feature original art from: Super Art Fight Champion and Best of Baltimore winner Michael “Spaghetti Kiss” Bracco, tattoo artist and SAF Contender Darl “Apocalypsegnau” Gnau, Super Art Fight founders Nick “Ghostfreehood” Borkowicz and Jamie Noguchi, Super Art Fight MC Ross Nover, the Godfather of Super Art Fight Chris Impink, the Logopimp of Laruaville Todd “Toddfather” Brizzi, and many more.
Ben Frock has played extraterrestrial music before, most notably, with the Intergalactic Ambassador of Funk, George Clinton. His Love Unit has gotten down and dirty with some serious celestial booty. The Unit combines the funky pop of 1970’s Michael Jackson with French avant garde jazz. They will pay homage to one of their favorite Earth born composers, John Williams.
