So, as has been stated in the 'Stash before Roq La Rue is moving to a far more exotic and exciting locale, right next door to their current location. Well, this Friday Kirsten and the gang are having a grand opening celebration and annual Halloween show. Here's the skinny:

We are thrilled that our inaugural show in our fancy new space will be
our annual Halloween themed exhibit, this year’s “Bad Moon Rising”
show. We will be exhibiting work by artists from all over the country
as well as overseas. The work, while dealing with dark themes, ranges
wildly from the dark, futuristic digital portraits by Quintin Gonzales
to the more playful cartoony paintings of Pooch. We are excited by the
return of gallery artists such as Lisa Petrucci, Jim Blanchard, and
Mike Leavitt as well as works by new artists to the gallery such as
tattooist and painter James McLeod, Japanese Pop Surrealist Yo Ueno,
and Lowbrow wood carver Ojimbo.

For the opening we will also have hearses from Rain City Hearse Club,
monster film clips courtesy Something Weird Video, refreshing liquids
and hideous candy, and live goth swamp-garage rock by ROT13!
