We're always up for a good theme here at the Catherine Couturier Gallery (formely John Cleary Gallery), and holidays always provide ample inspiration to cull our photographic archives. Halloween and Dia de los muertos give rise to the costumed and the creepy, the mystical and the macabre... so turn off the lights and enjoy!

For kids (and kids at heart), Halloween is a chance to shed the garb of everyday life and play a bit of dress up.

Those creepier, crawlier members of the animal kingdom are also culpable in creating the right mood for the holiday. They're often shunned, but let's give them their due, shall we?
