Boy, it seems like "Dark Xmas" comes earlier and earlier each year, doesn' it?

The annual three-day convention, which brings together movie stars and those who enjoy the horror and science fiction genre, was started in 2003 by Warren resident Travis Bowen.

The art galleries of Allegheny College will present “The Educated Brush,” “Asian Influences in Contemporary Ceramics” and “Asian Prints from the Allegheny College Collection” from Tuesday, Nov. 7 through Wednesday, Dec. 6. A reception at 8 p.m. in the Art Galleries will celebrate the opening of the three exhibits. Free and open to the public.

Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday, 12:30-5 p.m.; Saturday, 1:30 to 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 2-4 p.m. The Art Galleries are located in Doane Hall of Art, which is connected to the Campus Center on the Allegheny College campus, just east of North Main Street between College and John Streets in Meadville.
