Now in its seventh year in business, SugarMynt Gallery continues to celebrate Halloween and the things that happen at night throughout the year, this time focusing on the Halloween-loving child in all of us.

Tickets are on sale now for the opening night celebration, and tickets for other special events throughout the show will continue to be distributed on SugarMynt.com.

“‘Spooky Kids Club’ was one of the bucket list exhibits I wanted in my gallery,” says SaraRose Orlandini, owner of SugarMynt Gallery and co-curator of “Spooky Kids Club.” “This exhibit is dedicated to adults, like me, who have never gotten away from the spooky Halloween content that impacted their love for all things in this beloved genre.”

The main gallery will feature original artwork for sale by local California artists, as well as artists from across the United States. Paintings and exhibits will be inspired by content such as “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”, “Scooby-Doo”, “Are You Afraid of the Dark?”, “Coraline”, “Goosebumps”, Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction, McDonald’s Halloween Happy Meals, and many other pop culture staples that first sent shivers down our spines.

Among the artwork, you’ll find true pieces of entertainment history, including props from Disney’s Halloween classic “Hocus Pocus” and “Are You Afraid of the Dark?” from Nickelodeon. as well as Ben Cooper’s Halloween masks.

There will also be original photo opportunities inspired by some of your favorite titles.

“Being a huge fan of Halloween and horror was definitely instilled in me at a young age,” says “Spooky Kids Club” co-curator Jeff DePaoli. “Having the chance to celebrate these iconic pieces of spooky pop culture through the gallery and events is an absolute delight.”

Some events will also include courtyard screenings with special guests on select nights.

“Are You Afraid of the Dark?” co-creator DJ MacHale, along with “Corpse Bride” producer Allison Abbate and the voice of Goofy, Bill Farmer, are scheduled.

Plus, there will be nostalgic nights revisiting beloved Halloween-themed episodes of TGIF and SNICK. Disney’s “Halloweentown” star Kimberly J. Brown will also join the “Spooky Kids Club” for a day of autographs and meet-and-greets.

All outdoor screenings are private and free with regular prepaid admission to the gallery.
