Dea has been a fixture in the Denver art community for many years and her work has a sense of whimsy and silliness mixed with a serious love of animals and environment. Sharon is new to the gallery scene and we are proud to be her first gallery showing. Her sculptures perfectly complement the whimsy of Dea’s art and are as colorful as they are delightful. Cats, chickens, elephants, cows — we’ll have them all this month!”
