LORE: Original Art by Brenden Haskins

5:00 PM
Gallery ABBA invites you to the opening reception of "LORE" on Friday, October 26 from 5 to 8 pm at Gallery ABBA, 437 E. Grand Ave, across from the bookstore.
Meet the artist, Brenden Haskins, and enjoy light snacks and refreshments.
“LORE” is a collection of drawings by Beloit native Brenden Haskins. Haskins is a Junior at Beloit College, studying Studio Art and Creative Writing. A lifelong witch fanatic and Halloween junkie, Haskins takes considerable inspiration from his identity as a Midwesterner and his love of antiques, as well as his fascination with the Victorian Era. These drawings are chilling and eerie exaggerations of the artist’s admiration for this time of year.

If you cannot make it to the opening, you can stop by the gallery anytime between 11am-5pm Monday through Friday and 8am-1pm on Saturdays.
