Carter Sexton Artist’s Materials has been at the same location since opening in 1944. It was, and still is, a family owned business. No small feat in the time of big box stores and online suppliers. Part of its current success can be attributed to the staff who are almost all artists in their own right. Store Manager Niki Lambro has infused the locale with new life by curating a series of compelling art shows drawing on a wealth of local talent. For the Halloween Show, she even scored some original illustrations from Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas.”
It is my scary good luck to have two pieces in the same show as Tim Burton: my Catrina Lamp and my Rest in Peace Dead Head.
The Sushi Pirate food truck will be out front and wine and munchies indoors. Next door, the Art Parlor is having another Halloween-themed art show called Dark and Stormy…get two shows for the price of none!
