Purgatory: An Art Show Worth Waiting For

In only ten months, Pink Ghost (21 W. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale) has injected itself into the local art community’s consciousness. The pop culture venue showcases independently crafted work in local art shows, the next of which, Purgatory: Soul’s Lounge is happening Saturday night. This new exhibit displays the work of more than 15 local, national, and international artists – each representing their own version of the theme, Purgatory. Since the medium is decided by the show’s participants, you’ll see a variety of eye-catching representations, running the gambit from prints to acrylics on wood to photography and even toys.

Many of the artists will be present to answer questions, and, in the spirit of Halloween, guests are invited to dress up, and mask their hunger with Chic Desserts’ famous cupcakes. (“They’re famous because they’re delicious,” says Paola Mendez, co-owner of Pink Ghost.) The show starts at 7 p.m. and lasts as long as you do. The party is free. Visit www.pinkghost.net.
