BVAA Macabre Art Show

9th Annual BVAA Macabre Spooky Art Show – 2023

It’s creepy and it’s kooky! Mysterious and spooky! 2023 is the year for our 9th annual Macabre art show!

About the Show
Spooky. Unsettling. Wisps of mists and dark shadows. Macabre brings out the fascination with the off-beat side of life.

Submissions / Virtual Show
The online submission deadline for the Macabre show is Friday, October 27th, 2023. You don’t need to use the online submission form – you can simply email the JPGs to us. You can submit up to five works for the virtual show. It’s open to all BVAA members. This is not a judged show so you CAN enter things you’ve entered in previous shows (including previous Macabre shows).

The In Person Macabre Show

We have our Diversity show reception on Friday October 27th 5-7, and then the gallery is open its normal 10-3 hours on Saturday October 28th. So we’ll have stand-up panels in the gallery for those TWO DAYS ONLY for the Macabre special event. Please bring in 1-2 items for the panels. There will just be a few panels up, so we want to have room for everyone. You can bring your art with you Friday if you want and then pick them up any time after Saturday afternoon (or in later weeks). No rush. The in-person show is just a highlight to …

The Macabre Video
The video we release for the reception with be a “moody” version. It will have a soundtrack and the images showing one by one. It will be something you could have going in the background at a spooky dinner to add ambiance.

Virtual Reception
We’ll have our premiere of the video slideshow on Friday night October 27th to kick off the Halloween weekend.

This show is Halloween. Spooky. Shadowy.
