“Without Darkness, there can be no Light.”
Our gallery is a 12 x 15’ central room located on the 2nd floor of The Dark Parlour (PDF of dimensions here). With flat black walls and ceilings, artworks are highlighted with low-key lighting to create a very intimate experience between the work and the viewer. We show only ONE artist during an exhibit to allow full focus for the viewer to engage with the work, and exhibits run for two weeks to a month.
Previously exhibited artists include:
Steven Archer – Oil Painter
Dusty Rose (Dustin Walker) – Multimedia Tattoo Artist
Zack Dunn – Oil Painter
Travis Meyers (IAMUNLIKEYOU) – visual artist and wordsmith
Jeremy Pauley – Blood Artist
Jason Kreiger – Animator & Illustration
Acey Slade – Musician, Photographer, Coffee Entrepaneur
The Dark Parlour charges a $20 gallery submission fee upon acceptance, for showcasing your work in the store, and will additionally charge 10% commission on any artwork sold in the store during the length of the exhibit. Upon acceptance for exhibiting at The Dark Parlour, artists will be invoiced, and a contract will be sent. Commissions cover costs to advertise and occupy space within the parlour’s gallery.
The theme for submission is always Dark Art. Specifically, we are looking to promote artists that explore topics of death, nightmare, tragedy, loss, pain, the occult, suffering, mental illness, horror, etc. This is not a typical gallery.
We look at the darker elements of the Human Condition. All mediums and styles are welcomed and encouraged for submission, including oil, watercolor, charcoal, words, video, pencil, blood, photography, mixed, collage, etc. If it pushes boundaries and visually communicates an impactful message, it works.
