Artwork ranging from dragon-winged and monster-menaced shoes, to a gallery laundry tree and photos of shoes and laundry, is found in a show by longtime Oklahoma City artists Claudia Wylie and Jenny Woodruff.

The delightful, two-woman “shoes and laundry” show is on view at Paseo Art Space, 3022 Paseo, the gallery and office of the Paseo Arts Association.

A plastic Godzilla toy threatens a figure hiding inside the base of an orange plastic Eiffel Tower in a work by Wiley, a longtime Oklahoma City artist and friend of Woodruff.

Found objects also play a prominent part in a row made up of various kinds of shoes, displayed on top of fifteen small, red-orange plastic seats or stools, lined up on a low plastic shelf, by Wylie.

Tiny, doll-sized shoes on wire stands, placed atop five small red plastic chairs, seem to be looking down on a “Sea Snake,” which Wylie made by connecting shoe shapes, in a blue plastic child's wading tub.

Other attractions, supplied at no extra charge by Wylie, include a yellow and blue shoe with a red bulb that may be plugged in, and a chair filled with plastic hot dogs that squeaks, loudly, when you try to sit in it.
