Kaufman artist Toby Legg’s artwork will be featured during the Texas Frightmare Weekend at the Hyatt Regency DFW on May 1-3.
Legg said he feels honored to be included with other top artists of the genre. Among those to be featured at The Dark Art Show will be Reynold Brown, who Legg said is one of the premier artists in the world for his film posters created during the 1950s.
Brown was responsible for poster art for shows like "The Creature From the Black Lagoon," "The Alamo," "This Island Earth" and others. On exhibit at the Dallas event will be one of Brown’s original pieces, the poster art for the 1950s movie “Tarantula.”
Legg has created works depicting Vincent Price and the film “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” especially for the Texas Frightmare Weekend. Legg said his portrait of Vincent Price incorporates all of the film titles from Price’s long acting career.
They are “carefully woven to create the image of Price’s hair, facial features, clothing and even his tie,” Legg said.
The annual Texas Frightmare Weekend is in its 10th year and was recently voted the No. 1 horror convention by fans of iHorror.com.
“This year will feature the debut of the convention’s art show dutifully named The Dark Art Show,” Legg said. The art show is being curated by Theresa Jara who is an employee of the Dallas Museum of Art.
Legg said the event provides a unique lineup of guests and vendors. “Elvira-Mistress of the Dark, Ed Neal, the Hitchhiker from the original 1974 horror classic “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” Neve Campbell from “Scream” and “The Craft” and Malcolm McDowell from “Clockwork Orange” and other classics are all scheduled to attend.
Skeet Ulrich from “Scream,” “The Craft” and “As Good as it Gets,” Alexandra Breckenridge from “The Walking Dead” and “American Horror Story” and Sherilyn Fenn from the television show “Twin Peaks” are also slated to be on hand for the weekend.
