2021 Spooky Show entry "Health Inspection at the Entry into the Land of the Living" by Rong Yang.

Gallery director: “I think that fear or things that people find intimidating or scary is a common ground;” all media welcome for submission

The Arts Council of Southwestern Indiana (ARTSWIN) is calling for entries for their annual ‘Spooky Show’ which will run October 4 through the 29th.

These shows are not juried, meaning they will find a place for all entrants. Registration is open until September 22nd at 4 p.m. There are prizes of up to $300.

Said ARTSWIN Gallery Director Andrea Adams, “There's a range of things that can be spooky or scary to different people. It could be monsters or something supernatural, or it could be something real life that scares someone.”

One example is a 2021 entry — a haunting two-dimensional piece by Rong Yang titled "Health Inspection at the Entry into the Land of the Living."

It visually embodies the fear of living with COVID. Tt’s black and white and peppered with pop culture references.

“I think that fear or things that people find intimidating or scary is a common ground,” Adams said.

Adams said all media are allowed, but they’re also hoping for a selection of sculptures — even bigger ones that can adorn the 2022 Arts Awards: “A Spooky Soiree.”
