The exhibition will have an official opening on October 25 from 7 to 11 pm, Bryant and Robinson say. After that, visitors can schedule private viewings via the Gallerie Nomad Facebook page.

The artwork will be for sale. But the show is mainly aimed at raising awareness, Bryant says. Like the creative writing teacher at East Providence High School who once lent Bryant his personal copy of The Dreams in the Witch House, the curators want to tell locals about the rich vein of horror history in their backyard. "He's ours," Bryant says of Lovecraft. "He should be recognized more than he really is."

Out in Michigan, the significance of Rhode Island is not lost on Dennis Anderson. If his painting doesn't sell, he says, it might "ship back to me haunted or something." For Lovecraft fans, that's better than money.
