I know I'm not the first, and I'm surely not the last to fall under the spell of a LaRue creation: An animal-lover known for her often-humorous and sometimes politically motivated papier-mâché-based creatures, the area sculptor is a longtime local favorite whose work is always a pleasure to view. Such is the case with Shimmer: New Work by Dede LaRue, an up-to-the-minute LaRue showcase focusing on, but not limited to, recent works covered in mirrored mosaic reminiscent of the glittering Buddhist temples the artist encountered while traveling in Thailand.
Shimmer just what the holiday shopping doctor ordered for all you spendthrifts like me stays up through January 12 at Wilson Adams Gallery, 1307 Bannock Street. For details, call 303-825-0950 or visit www.wilsonadamsgallery.com.
