Brenda Killackey-Jones creates faux taxidermy sculptures of cryptozoological marvels. Her menagerie includes the mounted heads of dragons, werewolves, and yetis; their fierce faces made from fur, foam, fabric, resin, clay, glass, and wood. Through Halloween, you can check out her handiwork at Nox (302 North Goodman Street, in Village Gate). The small grouping of her creatures features fangs in slathering maws, reptilian eyes, rows of shimmering scales, and generally all the things that nightmares and fascination are made of.
And the art couldn't have found a better set of alt-space walls to grace — if you're looking for craft cocktails and comfort food playfully inspired by all forms of fandoms, Nox will satisfy. The show continues through Halloween. Nox's hours are Monday through Friday, 4 p.m. to midnight, and Saturday through Sunday, 12 p.m. to midnight.
