Witching Hour: Imagery from Darkness

Juror: S. Gayle Stevens

In October of 2014 we presented A Midnight Eerie. We followed that up last year with A Mystery and a Dream. This year, to continue a variation on a theme, we bring you Witching Hour: Imagery from Darkness.

Historically, the witching hour is that time of night when witches, ghosts, and supernatural beings are thought to be most active. The exact time varies depending on particular beliefs, but is generally considered to be some period of darkness between dusk and dawn. An everyday use of the term might define the witching hour simply as “after dark.”

This is a juried exhibition of photographic imagery that conveys interpretations of the witching hour.

October 15—November 12, 2016
