Last October we presented A Midnight Eerie—an exhibition of photographs inspired by the macabre writings of Edgar Allan Poe, the films of Alfred Hitchcock, and the various cultural beliefs and traditions of the season.

This October, to continue what might become a new tradition for Gallery 136½, Poe is once again an influence for A Mystery and a Dream.

We are seeking images that address the topics of mysteries and dreams. This may be approached somewhat literally—the image suggests a narrative of a mystery or dream, or abstractly—the image presents an air of mystery or a dreamlike mood. Forty to fifty photographs will be chosen by the juror to be exhibited at Gallery 136½.
