From Bedford Gallery:

Opening reception Thursday June 12th, 6 - 8 pm.

$5 Admission.

Join the artists at the opening reception and enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres hosted by the Bedford Gallery Guild. Rock your skull attire and accessories!

Closing our season, the Bedford will narrow its focus to the physical and historical world of the skull. The Skull Show examines the role that skulls have played in the historical register, as memento mori, traditional religious icons, and vanitas themes in still life paintings. The Skull Show will also highlight the role the skull has played in the contemporary arts, exploring its appearance in counter cultures such as skate, surf, tattoo, as well as urban graffiti projects.
