Alley Cats: An All Women Art Show, which opens Friday, August 16, was the result of two friends desiring to see more gallery access in the art community. "I've not been super-pleased with how things are run in the Denver art scene," says Taylor Boylston, artist and co-curator of the show. "I got to the point where I realized that if I wanted to see anything change, I'd have to be the one to do it."
Along with friend and co-curator Chelsea Bashford, the two women proceeded to turn their garage into a DIY art gallery. Situated at 409 Inca Street -- in the alley between Inca and Santa Fe Streets, to be exact -- the space, known as The Inca House, is right in the midst of vibrant Denver's Art District on Santa Fe, and looks onto the site of what will become the new Space Gallery.
