“Without Darkness, there can be no Light.”

Entering The Dark Gallery

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 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 – (August 2019) Oil Painter

Dusty Rose (Dustin Walker) – (September 2019) Multimedia Tattoo Artist

Zack Dunn – (October 2019) Oil Painter

Travis Trium Perfectum (IAMUNLIKEYOU) – (November 2019) visual artist and wordsmith

Jason Kreiger – (February 2020) Animator & Illustration

Acey Slade – (March 2020) Musician, Photographer, Coffee Entrepreneur

Peter Benedetti – (June – July 2021) Fine Art, Sculpture and The Divine Will Tarot

For Artists:

The Dark Parlour charges a $20 gallery submission fee upon acceptance, for showcasing your work in the store, and will additionally charge 25% 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.

For more information or to submit your work for review, please contact the owner directly at lrae@thedarkparlour.com.
