Dark Arts 2012: Dark Surrealists Fine Art Competition. Catalog of the 2012 Dark Surrealsists Fine Art Competition sponsored by Sunbury Press and jurored by Nunzio Barbera. There were 216 entries from 52 artists in no less than 4 countries. This book contains only those entries who were juried into the book and exhibition - 70 entries in all.

Surrealist art works are the by product of the subconscious mind, often presenting familiar objects in odd forms, positions or settings. If surrealism is experienced in dreams, then dark surrealism is the nightmare experience-illustrating the unimaginable, horrible or disturbing. Entries for the Dark Surrealism contest were divided into four categories: Paintings, Drawings, Mixed Media/Collage and Digital. Finalists were selected in each category for inclusion in this book and the exhibition. Category winners were selected, along with an overall winner, whose work was determined to be most attractive for the book cover.
