This year marks the 10th anniversary of the founding of 1975 Gallery, which emerged as a pop-up within Surface Salon in the South Wedge before gaining its own white walls on Charlotte Street. Though 1975's brick-and-mortar spot has been closed down for a few years now, owner and curator Erich Lehman has continued his work bringing creatives together for various projects, most notably in his role has lead curator for WALL\THERAPY. This week Lehman will present, "Dearly Departed," the first of two exhibitions to be held in celebration of 1975's 10 years. As Halloween and all things spooky are Lehman's wheelhouse, the show is horror-themed and features dozens of artists he's worked with over the years. And fittingly, the show will be presented at a space in the same building as Surface Salon's current location.
"Dearly Departed" opens on Saturday, October 20, 7 to 10 p.m. at 661 South Avenue, Suite A. Limited hours after the opening reception include Sunday, October 21, noon to 4 p.m.; Tuesday, October 23, and Thursday, October 25, 5 to 8 p.m.; Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28, noon to 4 p.m.; and by appointment. 1975ish.com.
