Domy Books is a book store/gallery space on E. Cesar Chavez in Austin, TX (also with a location in Houston that also held a Monster Show Six opening on the same night) . Domy specializes in editioned books, magazines, and products in national and international contemporary art culture. On October 29th, 2011 Domy held its 6th Annual Monster Show. The show runs till December 8th. The namesake for this show is not only for its timing of the Halloween season, but it is also a massive group show that is themed around monsters.

One of the main reasons I love stopping in to check out what exhibition Domy has to offer is that most of the shows are selling the pieces, and Monster Show Six was no exception. Although currently some of the pieces are sold, there are still many that are available as a way for someone to start up their art collection or just to help up and coming artists. For more photos from Monster Show Six and Monster shows of the past please visit Domy Books flickr. I would highly recommend anyone that is in the area stop into Domy Books and support them as much as possible, they are a amazing book store and are on the East Austin Studio Tour this weekend and next.
