Are you ready for this? Guzu Gallery is having not one, but two shows this weekend, and one of them is the first of its kind in the area!

First up, is Strange Beasts IV, the gallery’s annual Kaiju show that manages to pack in giant-sized monsters, destruction and lots of weird. The show makes its triumphant return, bringing with it a set of esteemed artists and their huge imaginations. Expect to see titans from Japanese cinema, but also characters from tokusatsu, manga and even anime. Opening reception is Friday, December 2nd from 7-10PM and artwork will remain on display until January 2nd – RSVP to the opening HERE.

Art from Strange Beasts will be available online Monday, December 5th around Noon CST. – SCROLL BELOW FOR VULGARIS MORTEM: A SOFUBI ART TOY EXHIBITION!!

Next up, is Vulgaris Mortem: A Sofubi Art Toy Exhibition. For this one, Violence Toy and Krotpong Industries have teamed up to curate a one day only exhibit with soft vinyl art toys. The contributing artists were given themes ranging from black plague, funerals, winter and death, but the results rested upon each participant’s own morbid inspiration. The results are truly one-of-a-kind, and are sure to melt your brain. It all takes place Saturday, December 3rd, following the opening of Strange Beasts IV – RSVP to the opening HERE.

Remainding toys from the exhibit will available online after the show. Stay tuned to Guzu Gallery’s Facebook or Twitter for previews!
