A two-woman show featuring the art of Kayo Peeler and Dena Peterson (formerly Kirk),
Inspired by amusement parks and traveling carnivals.

October is the perfect time to experience the art of Kayo Peeler and Dena Peterson (formerly Kirk) in a special two-woman show.  Memories, mysteries and realities of the sometimes surreal atmosphere of carnivals and amusement parks will unfold in this unique exhibit of deeply personal, sometimes whimsical, and always exciting work.
From the Artists:   
“My work is painted on reclaimed wood, metal, and other cast-off  industrial materials.   This is a direct homage to the  aged gears, flickering lights, rusty metal and peeling painted wood of the iconic Lakeside Amusement Park, near Denver, Colorado.  ”

“I examine popular culture and identity through a slightly dark, slightly twisted lens.   This series re-imagines vintage female Carnival performers into my own personal, mythological divas, using surprising materials such as silicone, alpaca fur, and handmade sculptural elements. “
