Satanic Temple's Salem Art Gallery Announces Vincent Castiglia Exhibition

Salem Art Gallery - the headquarters and cultural center of The Satanic Temple in Salem, MA - is pleased to present Sanguine Spring, a selection of large-scale paintings, limited editions, and sculptures by world renowned artist Vincent Castiglia.

The exhibition is inspired by the idea that Romans viewed February as a time of purification and honoring one's ancestors. Ritualized bloodletting, purging, and celebrations of opulent excess often accompanied observances such as Lupercalia, Parentalia and Feralia in February to expel the vestiges of winter. Castiglia's art - created with human blood - embodies personal, emotional, and creative purification and purging oneself into one's art.

The Sanguine Spring exhibition is opening this Saturday, February 18th from 8 - 11pm. For more information, please visit this location. Lucien Greaves, co-founder and spokesperson for The Satanic Temple, states:

"As a long-time fan of Mr. Castiglia's art, I'm honored that The Satanic Temple's Salem Art Gallery will now host a selection of his original works - which deftly blend horror and wonder, disfigurement and beauty - for a limited exhibition. The scale, detail and living quality of his works must be experienced to be understood, and I feel that The Satanic Temple is the perfect environment for this uniquely unrepentant visceral aesthetic event."
