ARS NECRONOMICA is a three-gallery survey of fine, commercial and outsider art, both contemporary and historical, that will redefine the life and creative legacy of iconoclastic author H. P. Lovecraft (1890-1937). This three-part exhibition will showcase and build upon the existing patina through explorations in popular culture and the visual arts with an unrivaled collection of work from international and regional sources.
This series of events, organized by the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council, is being held in conjunction with NecronomiCon Providence (necronomicon-providence.com), a citywide celebration of the author and his writing.

Lots of amazing names on this list! Some I know, some I don't, looking forward to the exhibits. And... NICK BLINKO?? Oh man. I have been a fan of his art since discovering the first Rudimentary Peni LP back in the '80s. I bought an extra copy of "Death Church" so I could put the fold-out poster on my wall. Wow. Hope the man is doing OK these days...
I'm looking forward to seeing at least one of the exhibitions during our stay - I'd love to see all of them, but I'm afraid there won't be enough time...
The Providence Art Club is a ten-minute walk from the Biltmore hotel and the Cohen Gallery is a five-minute walk from there. If you can see one, you can most certainly see two. I'm a local and I'm quite looking forward to it!
