Last Rites Gallery is pleased to announce its 5 Year Anniversary Show that will feature over forty works of art by a selection of its acclaimed roster of artists. The 5 Year Anniversary Show celebrates the gallery’s continued mission to showcase and harbor the world of dark surrealism and honor the artists that have paid the genre homage by digging into the darkest crevices of their minds and souls. It is with the talent, courage and vision of our artists that we thrive and continue to make our mark on the art world. We exhibit these works in gratitude, introspection and camaraderie, with the aspirations to continue challenging both the individual and group to engage and reflect on the beauty within the darkness.

 

“As both a tattoo and fine artist who specializes in dark art, it has been a dream of mine to open a gallery that serves as both a sanctuary and mecca for the obscure and dark. I am so pleased to have exhibited so many amazing artists throughout the years and look forward to continued success in bringing the genre of dark surrealism to light.” – Paul Booth
