DAMNED II: A Dark Fine Art Exhibition

A Dark Fine Art Exhibition and Formal Masquerade Ball

wsg/Jill Tracy October 29 & 30 2009

Detroit, MI Tangent Gallery / Hasting Street Ballroom

On October 29 2009 in Detroit, there will be a congregation of the most controversial fine art artists from across the nation and overseas to display their darkest of creations at DAMNED II, and MOTORCITYBLOG will be there covering this unique event.

(Be sure to check back after Halloween for photo coverage by MCBs own contributing photographer, LAWRENCEcreative/Brett J. Lawrence.)

From the famous to the freshest of talent, this ominous assembly will exhibit a diversity of artistries from the deeply depraved to the intensely introspective guaranteed to intrigue, disturb, captivate or repulse. This is not Halloween-themed art but a submergence within the shadowed realms of consciousness within an intimate ambiance of haunting ethereal soundscapes, intimate gallery vignettes and cirque-inspired stage performances. Then, on Devil's Night (October 30), we celebrate this artistic submergence with an intimate six-course dinner of aphrodisiac delights followed by a grand ball of masquerade and dance within the milieu of exotic rhythms, floor performances and art. To nightcap the ball evening, we now welcome the sensuous noir cabaret sounds of Jill Tracy ( in a rare midnight solo performance. Current confirmed special guests artist for 2009 include HR Giger, Chad M Ward, Christian Correra, Jose Manuel Schmill, Rich Rethorn, Paul Rumsey, John U Abrahamson, William B Hand, JL Robbins, Eli Livingston, Stephen Blickenstaff, Janina Magnussen, Peggy Wauters, Aunia Kahn, Brian Viveros and dozens of other artists from all over the world!

Submission deadline is September 25 2009 and there are no fees for submitting.
