And You Thought All the SideShows Were at the State Fair …

While it ain't racing pigs, the Oct. 6 show at Gallery5, "The Carnival of 5 Fires," does promise such oddities as Rose Csorba's puppet show wherein the critters, as in "The Case of the Missing Ferris Wheel" above — far from Miss Piggy — are taxidermied animals. And look to makeup artist Beth Gorley for the sideshow, the inside-out boy and all his pals. It's sort of a festival atmosphere for the damned, where the art ranges from the kaleidoscopic collages of Donnie Green to Kathryn Parker's forlorn fairies to burlesque and belly dancing. And always, always music! The kind of good time that's had at the corner of Sex and Morbid. But it's a colorful world, even without the supersized squash. "The Carnival of 5 Fires" opens with the First Fridays Artwalk, 7-10 p.m. 644-0005.
