Gallery U in Westfield, NJ, is pleased to offer a treat this October with their annual Halloween exhibition “Something Wicked This Way Comes: Artwork Celebrating the Gothic & Beautifully Macabre.” Artwork of various mediums and styles by nineteen artists will be on exhibit from October 9 - November 2, 2015.
