Ghost Night at the EVE Gallery


Lisa Isabella Russo (mine! :) )

In China, the seventh lunar month is called "Ghost Month."  "Ghost Day" is on the 15th day of that month.  It is thought that our realm and the realm of ghosts have a barrier that is not in effect on that day and ghosts may come to visit.

GHOULA was there...

It is a day of celebration.  In honor of the spirit of that day, on Saturday September 1st, the EVE Gallery and GHOULA hosted Ghost Night.

GHOULA is an acronym for Ghost Hunters of Urban Los Angeles.  They're a group that meets on the 13th of every month at establishments reputed to be haunted to celebrate the local ghostly lore in addition to other events.

At the last minute, I submitted a print for the show.  I didn't mention it in advance because I wasn't sure if my art was ghostly enough to fit the theme, but I brought it anyway since I was submitting my Wonder Woman piece for their charity event next weekend.  I was thrilled when I went in to see it up on their walls.

The gallery was filled with people who came to see the art and share and listen to ghost stories.  This is but a small sampling of the artwork that was there.  The art was quite varied, some of it quite chill inspiring indeed!  It was a splendid evening.

In other notes, I managed to trip over my own foot and sprain it Saturday night...  I had a full painting week planned, but since I paint standing at an easel, definitely not today!  It is starting to feel better though, so I am hopeful for later in the week.

My friend, I hope your foot is feeling better! For the past two days, my ankle has been hurting me and I don't know what happened? It has been so painful, I haven't been able to drive. Ouch! I love this Ghost Night at the Eve Gallery! I would have love to went!

Oh Stacy that sounds dreadful! Maybe you should see a doctor? Mine is improving, I'd like for it to be improving more rapidly, but it is improving... Ghost Night was fun, I'm sure it would have been even more fun if you also had been there!
