In some parts of the country, the night before Halloween is known as Mischief Night. Although it may not be called that around these parts, the Eve of All Hallows' Eve in Asheville is bound to get a ilttle devilish – even at an art opening.

Voted WNC's Best Muralist, Asheville aerosol artist Gus Cutty is celebrating Halloween, and 80's heavy metal and horror movies in his latest show in the Push Gallery downtown. The exhibit features 8 new collaborative pieces by Cutty and other local artists such as Alli Good, Hannah Dansie, Madd Maxx, and Ian Wilkinson. The opening reception is Friday, October 30 from 7-9pm and costumes are encouraged.

From the press release:

Remember that time in 1984 when we found your brothers Judas Priest record and went into the attic and lit candles and played it backwards and it told us to steal my sisters barbies and melt their heads together til it looked like a rad goat headed demon then we had to hide the evidence in that abandoned school in the woods behind our neighborhood so we wouldnt get caught and we found all those playboys in the leaves with the eyes cut out and pentagrams drawn all over em?!?

This is gonna be just like that.”


Sounds like fun to us.

Gus Cutty's "Satanic Panic" exhibit is at the PUSH Gallery and Skate Shop located at 25 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville and runs through November 2015. 

The opening reception is Friday, October 30th from 7-9pm.
