The last two Halloweens in Connecticut were a bust. Two years ago it was "Frankenstorm." Last year it was Hurricane Sandy. The folks at the Mercurial Gallery are really into Halloween, but their fun kept getting canceled. And what with global warming and a busy predicted hurricane season for 2013, they're going to play it safe by having a 1/2 Halloween show with a reception this Friday, May 31st, exactly six months before/after actual Halloween. See spooky and/or offbeat paintings by Walter von Egidy, Tess Barbato and John Slaney and sculpture by William Blass before another natural disaster wipes our favorite holiday yet again.
