The Butchers Daughter
Kathy Knaus grew up in Wheat Ridge, where her father owned a meat market Edwards Meats thats still a going concern now run by her nephew. When she was a teenager, she worked behind the counter during summer breaks from school. And since 2006, shes created works of art about the experience the latest being the brand-new installation Meat Market.
Lots of it is about re-creating the memories I have, says Knaus. Ive had a meat cooler built using the door my father made, with sawdust on the floor like he used to do; I have butcher paper hanging down on the wall with a video of my paintings projected on it; the sausage machine my father used; meat hooks and his scale. This total environment now fills one half of Ice Cube, the new artist co-op at 3320 Walnut Street. In the other half is Coliseum, a show devoted to a selection of neo-expressionist paintings and other mixed-media works by Theresa Anderson.
Both shows will be unveiled at a reception from 5 to 9 p.m. tonight; for more information, call 303-292-1822 or go to www.icecubegallery.com.
