Yesterday I finally made it to the Nina Gaby Studio and Gallery in Brookfield (that's a long "i" in Nina — "N eye na" not "neena"). I had wanted to swing by this spring for the Divine Devotion show, but Brookfield is, like, an hour away, and I just couldn't find the time. Fortunately, some of the shrines and dolls and things were still on display, along with a bunch of bizarre clay masks.
I took a bunch of pictures, but unfortunately forgot to get artist names to go with them. So if you want to find out more about these captivating works, you need to contact Nina or visit her quirky little one-room gallery. It's around back of her house, next to the Green Trails Inn. If you like semi-creepy devotional art, it's worth the trip.
