There lives an infernal mess of paintings, drawings, nuts, bolts, wooden sculpture and installed terror, abominable things to the normal gallery, because they don’t get on with them … The horror! The horror! Luckily, there are no boats (much less an extensive river journey to collect ivory, or a power-hungry Mr. Kurtz). Instead, take a 20-foot walk to the back room of downtown’s Push Skateshop and Gallery. Arts of Darkness has come back to Push after a year’s hiatus. Store owner Rob Sebrell and area photographer and designer Josh Rhinehart co-curated this year’s show, in which 13 mostly local artists descend on the space, bringing with them Halloween- and horror-packed works. Among the offerings: a portrait of a gay werewolf by Andy Herod, and a hand-carved black-walnut mirror with hot pink-claws by Peter Parpan. Through the month of November. 25 Patton Ave. 225-5509.
