While traveling back to Oregon from Arizona in January I discovered a fun little gallery in the heart of Salt Lake City: Kayo Gallery, http://www.kayogallery.com/ It’s a younger gallery with lots of spirit. A piece that they had on exhibit when I was there that made me laugh out loud was a taxidermied two headed duckling, you don’t see one of those everyday.
One of their artists and owners Shilo Jackson, does very intriguing trompe l’oeil paintings of paper objects pasted on a board: http://shilojackson.com/home.html I gave into the urge and bought the above piece from her. Her work I found delightful with a nice nod to art history- they’re also quite affordable! It was good to see some fun art in the heart of Utah.
